Sitting on my counter this morning were 3 over-ripe bananas that needed to be turned into something-soon. What to bake? Banana bread, of course! I used a recipe I found on vegweb, I was drawn to it as it used whole wheat flour and other good stuff and didn’t use a whole lot of sugar. The results were delicious, I liked the slightly different texture the flax meal and cornmeal contributed to and as of this afternoon more than half of the loaf is gone with only three people eating it.
