Banana Bread

Bread Bread Bread.. amen to a delicious breakfast

Few weeks ago, One of my colleagues came to work with the moistest banana bread i have ever had, it was delicious, i just had to ask for a recipe.. She said it was her mums so i pleaded with her to ask her mum for a recipe, and she delivered (Thanks Sam's mum)...

Whole wheat banana bread (makes 2 big Loaf Pans) (YES I TWEAKED IT)
I am always trying to make recipes as healthy as i can, so i tweaked this a lot before using it, reduced the sugar, used half portions of whole wheat and all purpose flour, used becel pro.activ margarine instead of butter, which is a calorie reduced margarine, and reduced the sugar she recommended, i also upped the number of bananas to help with the sweetness.
You can try both,[ scroll down to view more images, i attached pictures of her recipe ] if you have a really sweet tooth you'd love hers, mine was sweet also and just as moist.. so yay winning recipe below
