“I love the simple way the recipe comes together in a quick bread.  As with any recipe, I think there is room to make it healthier, or at least more nutritionally beneficial.” Sulynweaver.

3 or 4 mashed over ripe bananas

¾ cup buttermilk

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 ½ cup all purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder
