BRANana bread (Taste of Home- February/March 2010)
Here is a great recipe that I made this morning. Try it.
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c wheat bran (I used 1/2 bran cereal)1/3 c granulated sugar (I left the sugar out and used 2 T honey)
1/4 c ground flaxseed or flaxmeal (I used flaxseed and left it whole)
1 t each baking soda and baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon (I always double the use of cinnamon in a recipe)
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 c mashed super ripe bananas (Don’t fudge with this one or else you’ll get a loaf that tastes like cardboard-just a way to add natural sweetness without sugar- mine were black after freezing and thawing them)
3/4 c plain yogurt
2 T butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c finely chopped walnuts
1/3 c mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (I left these out completely)
Preheat Oven to 350.
Spray 9×5 in. loaf pan lightly with cooking spray.
Combine all dry ingredients (MINUS WALNUTS/CHOC CHIPS).
Whisk together all wet ingredients including honey if you do not use granulated sugar.
Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients making sure not to overblend.
Add walnuts (and chocolate if you use them).
Bake 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean from center.
Cool 10 minutes in pan on wire rack.
