Banana Bread

We have been trying to cut bad carbs from our diet without sacrificing our favorites. I altered my favorite banana bread recipe and the kids love it. The sugar has been cut back and we upped the fiber content.

Better for You - Banana Bread
3 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flax seed
3 eggs

Mix dry stuff. Mash the bananas with lemon juice, set aside. Cream oil and sugar, add eggs and beat until fluffy - 4 minutes. Add flour mixture alternately with the milk. Don't over mix. Fold in bananas and nuts. Pour into to large bread pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hr.

This isn't really sweet but it tastes like bananas and is nice and moist.
