Banana Bread Recipe

I have been slowly creating this recipe, changing others I found online to be more to our taste. This is a very banana-ie, moist, thick bread :)

When we ended up with 30lbs of Banana's this week I was able to perfect it. I have been doubling this recipe and doing it in a spring form pan, but any type of pan (or muffins would be fine)


 1 cups all-purpose flour
 1 cups whole wheat flour
 1/2 cup bran flakes

 2 tablespoons flax seeds
 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil)
 1/2 cup sugar  (Or honey or maybe none at all if the bananas are really good and ripe)
 2 eggs, beaten
 ~8 mashed overripe bananas

nuts or raisins if you like


 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a pan.

 In a large bowl, sift flours,  baking soda and salt. Mix in bran and flax.

In a separate bowl, cream together soft butter and sugar. Mix in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Add nuts if you like. Pour batter into prepared pan.

 Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
