Banana Bread

We always have a lot of bananas in hand to make smoothies for my daughter. But we also always have too much of them that they end up all browning. This is a great way to use up your bananas without having to throw them away.

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 /2 cup mashed bananas
1 3/4 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine first 3 ingredients and beat until frothy.

2) Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Add to wet mixture. Add bananas (and nuts if you decide to use) and blend thoroughly.

3) Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick test comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and serve.
