Banana Bread is one of the first desserts I made when I started college and realized how easy and fun cooking could be. Before college my mom had always been such an wonderful and accommodating cook to my vegetarianism I never knew that cooking was something I had inherited.

As I’ve learned to cook I’ve called my mom countless times asking for recipes that she had used in the past–this is one of them. The added wheat flour makes it a bit more healthy.

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

[cream these ingredients]


4 large mashed bananas

(the more ripe, the better)

1 cup white flour

1 cup wheat flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup chopped walnut or pecans

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

[add the remaining ingredients]


Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes

You can also eat this for breakfast, especially heated up. My friend Whitney would insist that you smother it in cream cheese.
