1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup ripe mashed bananas (approx 3 medium)
1/4 cup margarine, room temperature
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup roasted, crushed walnuts
How it's made:
Pre-heat oven to 350deg F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except raisin & walnuts. Beat at medium speed for 2-3 mins. Fold in raisins. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan or a pan lined with wax paper. ( Greasing pan is not required if you decide to use wax paper).
Top with walnuts. Bake for 45-50 mins or until toothpick/skewer/knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely for an hour & store in airtight container.
Note: For glass pan, set oven temperature to 350 deg. For metal pan, 325 deg.
