This can be doubled easily, so make two loaves to last all week. Try toasting slices and serving with cream cheese or peanut butter.
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 medium-size ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 (7-oz.) package dried fruit bits
Vegetable cooking spray
How to Make It
Place pecans in a single layer in a jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine sugar and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in pecans and fruit bits. Pour mixture into an 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350° for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan, and cool on wire rack 2 hours or until completely cool.
Quick and easy to mix up - no mixer needed. Dried blueberries are my favorite; they can be pricey, but good for you and flavor is so good with bananas here.
Taste is great. I love the fact that the recipe only uses 2 Tblsp. of butter, yet it is not missed.
This is a winner in my book. I've made it several times and it always turns out great.
