Do you have ripe bananas on your kitchen counter? Don’t throw them away, make this healthy brown bread recipe that I have been using for a long time. Whole grain flour and flaxseed makes it high in fiber with a better profile of vitamins and protein than using refined white flour. Try it and have it ready for your morning coffee or tea!

2 large egss, lightly beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 ripe bananas or 2 cups of bananas, mashed
1/4 cup chopped walnut

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease 9 x 5 loaf pan. In a bowl, combine eggs, oil, sugar, applesauce and vanilla extract. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, ground flaxseed, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir the egg mixture into the flour bowl,  mix with a spatula until you have a uniform consistency. Lastly, add the bananas, and walnuts and combine. Place in the baking dish and bake for about an hour or until you insert a knife in the middle and it comes out clean. Let the bread cool in pan. Salud!
