Banana Bread


Makes 4 loaves.

3 cups sugar

12 large mashed bananas 

3 cups olive oil

8 eggs

8 cups whole wheat pastry flour 

2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

2cups chocolate chips (also optional)

4 teaspoons baking soda

2 tablespoons vanilla

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons salt

Heat the oven to 325. Grease the loaf pans. Mix sugar, mashed bananas, oil, and eggs together in a large bowl.

Stir in remaining ingredients just until the dry ingredients are mixed in. Pour into pans. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes (so it doesn't crumble and make a mess), then use a knife to loosen the sides of the loaf from the pan. Let cool completely before slicing.
