Whole Wheat Banana Bread Recipe

There's only one thing I love more than music and that's eating. Though I'm technically on a diet, I am trying to make better choices when I eat...I do have my weaknesses though, baked goods being that weakness...Carbs are certainly not my friend but I have a love/hate relationship with them. I also love to share recipes I've found or been given that I love...If someone tells me to never share the recipe, I respect that, otherwise I will pass on the love. This is one of those recipes that I wasn't told I couldn't share so here's a little loaf of love from me to you. This is healthier than traditional Banana Bread but keep in mind that it's NOT gluten free and certainly has it's share of calories.

2 c Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 c butter
1/2 c light or dark brown sugar
1/4 c honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
3 medium bananas mashed
*optional 1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F degrees

Blend all ingredients together in a large bowl until smooth. Spoon the batter into a lightly greased load pan. Let rest at room temperature for approx. 10 minutes. Bake bread for 50 minutes until brown and then cover with aluminum foil for additional 10 minutes. Test with toothpick, which should come out clean. Cool for 10 minute before removing from pan and then cool it completely on a baking rack.
