Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

     I like banana bread, but I've found that most recipes are basically just cake with bananas.  I started tweaking mine in order to come up with something a little healthier.  It has now been tweaked way past recognition, and pretty much shares bananas in common with the original, but I find it much yummier, and the kids really like it too.  I think Samuel could eat a whole cake by himself! 
Here's the recipe for those who might be looking for a healthier version for themselves:

Banana Oat Bread

Pre heat oven to 350, and grease 12 cup bunt pan.
In large mixing bowl, whisk together,

·         2 cups white whole wheat flour
·         ½ cup wheat bran

·         1 cup oats

·         ½ cup whole wheat flour

·         1 tablespoon baking powder

·         1 teaspoon baking soda

·         1 tablespoon cinnamon

·         ½ teaspoon nutmeg

·         ½ teaspoon coriander

·         ½ teaspoon salt

Stir in 1 cup pumpkin seeds.
In another large mixing bowl, whisk together,

·         2 eggs

·         1 ½ cup brown sugar

·         6 mashed bananas

·         2/3 cup oil

·         2 teaspoons vanilla

Add dry ingredients, and mix together with a few strokes.  Pour into pan and bake 50-55 minutes, or until skewer inserted into middle comes out clean.
