Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread
And so the brown bananas strike again. They don’t strike as often since we’ve had Caleb. That kid loves bananas. Somedays I wonder if he is half monkey. He would eat bananas at every meal if we let him…and he climbs on everything! Hmm…maybe he really is part monkey. We better watch to see if he starts growing lots of hair:)
Anyways, we finally had a bunch of bananas turn brown so I jumped at the chance to make banana bread. I usually make Buttermilk Banana Bread, but I wanted to make a new recipe. Big surprise, huh? I am always itching to make new recipes:) I had an open bag of Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flour (we made pancakes the day before) so I put the flour to good use and made Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread.
First, I roasted the bananas in the oven. Don’t be scared by the ugly brown and blistered bananas. They bring out the best flavor in the bananas. And roasting them is easy. Just place the unpeeled bananas on a baking sheet, pop them into a 350 degree F oven and let them roast for about 15-20 minutes. That’s it!
The rest of the recipe is easy too! I bet you have everything in your kitchen to make this bread right now. Unless, you have a little monkey eating all of your bananas:)
This recipe will make 2 (8×4 loaves) or 4 mini loaves. I made mini loaves this time around so we could share with our friends. Plus, they are super cute and everything cute tastes better:)
We love this Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread. I will have to hide the bananas from Caleb so I can make it again! For the recipe, check out my guest post at Cafe Zupas. Have a great weekend!
