Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread


3-cups whole wheat flour
2/3-cup unsweetened applesauce (in lieu of same amount of canola oil)
1-1/4 cups sugar (OK to reduce to 1-cup)
*1/2-cup wheat germ (or oatmeal or or Kellogg's All-Bran cereal or any similar
whole grain
1-cup egg substitute (in lieu of 4 med/large eggs)
2-cups mashed bananas (approx. 4 large or 5 medium)
1/2-cup coarsely chopped nuts (I use walnuts most of the time)
2-teaspoons baking soda
1-teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon baking powder
1-tablespoon cinnamon
Optional: 1/2-cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use extra large mixing bowl. Mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients afterward with banana mash last. Divide batter into two 8x4-inch loaf pans. Bake for one hour or until knife/tester comes out clean )Note: if oven temp is right on 350, 60-65 minutes is long enough; otherwise, may need to add oven time in 5-10 minute increments depending on how 'wet' batter is.
