Ingredients:

3 or 4 very ripe bananas
1/8 cup stevia
4 tbsp canola oil, plus a little more for oiling the loaf pan

1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush a loaf pan with oil.

2. Mash the bananas and mix with the stevia, canola oil and vanilla extract.

3. Stir together the whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt. Add the nuts.

4. Blend the two mixtures and spoon into a loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until center is set.
