Rich Buttery Whole Wheat Extra Virgin Olive Oil Banana Bread Recipe

Banana Bread

Preheat the oven to 350.  Thoroughly grease a standard loaf pan with one teaspoon of Delizia's All Natural Butter Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

In a large bowl whisk together thoroughly:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) 
In a separate bowl blend together
6 tablespoons Delizia's All Natural Butter Flavored extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
Fold in until combined:
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts or pecans (optional

Combine the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients until just incorporated - do not over mix.  Scrape the batter into a pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding to cool completely on the rack.
