Banana Bread

After yesterday's article about homemade baked goods, I wanted to share my banana bread recipe. It makes 10 servings.  I eat a piece of this right before I head out for my run.  This provides enough fuel to keep me going for 60-90 minutes. Enjoy!!!


½ cup of canola oil
½ cup of sugar
2 eggs
2 cups of whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 ripe bananas (mashed)

  1. Preheat Oven to 350F or 180C.
  2. Mix the oil and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Next I beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then add to the mixture and stir.
  4. Next, I add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and mix.
  5. To mash the bananas, I add to a separate bowl.  I use my potato masher, but you can also use a spoon.  After mashing, add the bananas to the mix.
  6. I place the mixture into a greased loaf pan (I use PAM).
  7. Bake for 50 minutes.
  8. After 50 minutes, I take it out and slice into 10 pieces.
  9. Next, place in the oven for 5 more minutes
  10. After they have cooled down, I wrap each individually in foil and freeze.
  11. To cook.  Place in the microwave for about 45 – 60 seconds or for a morning run, place in the fridge overnight.
