Healthy Banana Bread

I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food -

Do you know what the best use of old bananas is? Banana bread, of course! This recipe uses some whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour for extra fiber and walnuts for healthy omega-3 fatty acids. It is perfectly moist and great for breakfast or snacktime! The Magic Bullet makes this recipe quick and easy – just load up the large blender cup with the ingredients and pulse until you get a nice chunky batter. I love banana bread served warm with a glass of milk – yum!
