This is Mom's banana bread, which she created when she was craving sweet things while on Weight Watchers. It has a nice, dark texture versus store-bought banana bread, and it keeps you fuller longer because of the extra fiber.
The recipe, after the jump.
Whole Wheat Banana Bread
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all together, mashing the bananas well with a fork. Bake in two 9x5" greased loaf pans or lined muffin tins. Bake 1 hour or more for loaves - 40 minutes for muffins - insert a toothpick in middle until it comes out clean.
