Whole Wheat Banana Bread

What a wonderful smell fills the house when this is in the oven!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread
5 c. whole wheat flour*
2 c. sugar
2 T. + 1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. oil
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 c. mashed banana**

Mix thoroughly pour into greased and floured loaf pans (2 large pans or 3 smaller pans). Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 65 minutes.

*The loaves will come out fluffier and higher if you use 2 to 3 cups whites flour, rather than 100% whole wheat.
**Approximately 2 bananas. You can stick bananas in the freezer when they are over ripe and you no longer want to eat them- just pull them out a few minutes before your ready to cook with them, after they have thawed out about 5 to 10 minutes you can take the peeling right off.

Do you think this recipe could also work for muffins?

Yes, I think it would be great in muffins. Probably need to reduce the bake time. Maybe do a toothpick test at 20 minutes and then every 10 minutes after until it comes out clean.
