Honey Whole Wheat Banana Bread

My kids just love this whole wheat banana bread recipe! It's one of our favorite family recipes to make for a snack.

Honey Wheat Banana Bread


This Honey Whole Wheat Banana Bread is a great example of how changing a few ingredients in a favorite recipe can increase the nutritional value. I switched the regular flour to whole wheat and added some ground flax seed for additional fiber.

It's still a treat, but it's better for us. With a base recipe like this, you can add chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips, whatever your family enjoys.

My kids love a small piece of Honey Wheat Banana Bread with a hard-boiled egg for breakfast, or with a cold glass of milk as an afterschool snack.
