Healthy Banana Bread

What do you do when you have ripped bananas on hand? You make a smoothie, nice cream and/ or banana bread. We had a bunch of ripened bananas on hand, and I froze some for nice cream and smoothies. However, it was a great day to make banana bread. I purchased a large bag of wheat flour from Marshalls during their yellow tag sale during the springtime, and I honestly, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with such a large bag. Seeing how I love to cook and bake. I've been figuring out how to put the bag in use. It also just so happens that the Mister is trying to live a healthier lifestyle, and the wheat flour has really come in handy. 

What I love about this recipe is that it doesn't include any refined sugar or oils. I did not grease my pan with oil. However, depending on the pan you use. You may prefer to do so. I honestly didn't plan on posting this recipe. The Mister and my father raved about the baby bread, and I just couldn't wait to share the recipe with you.
