Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Banana Bread

1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
4 bananas
1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup dried cranberries

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Banana Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Lighly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with butter.

  3. Combine flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Whisk and set aside.

  4. In another large bowl, combine butter, honey, and sugar and beat for two minutes. Add the eggs and lightly beat until just combined. Mix in bananas and vanilla -- do not overmix. Gradually beat in the flour mixture in thirds.

  5. Dilute baking soda in cup hot (not boiling) water, then beat into batter.

  6. Stir in, by hand, the cranberries.

  7. Pour the batter into the pan and bake at 325 for 52 minutes. (test for doneness being careful not to overbake as it may dry out the bread)

  8. Remove from pan and place on a wire rack to cool. If you plan to serve this to guests and want clean slices, then allow it to cool for 30 minutes. If you want to enjoy some melt-in-your-mouth, out-of-this-world, warm banana bread, then dig in after 5 minutes.
