Strawberries brighten this dense whole-wheat banana bread, adding a light berry pizazz.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 5/8 cup vegetable oil, divided
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour loaf pan.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a medium bowl blend together with an electric mixer the oil, sugar, eggs and banana until well combined.
Add banana mix to the flour mix. Add the strawberries. Mix with a spoon until combined. Do not overmix.
Pour the mix into the loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the loaf is well browned. Note: Blueberries or chocolate chips are great in place of the strawberries.
