  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter (1/4 cup)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 6 ripe medium bananas if they are larger bananas you may need less
  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts optional


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan. You may need to use a greased muffin pan to use the extra batter or disregard the extra batter.
  • In an microwave safe bowl, soften your butter. Set aside to cool.
  • Peel and mash your bananas with a fork.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the whole wheat flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Add the bananas.
  • Add the vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Slowly mix in the eggs and sour cream and then mix in the butter.
  • Mix well with a hand mixer for about two to three minutes.
  • If desired add the pecans or walnuts and stir in with a large spoon.
  • Carefully pour into a loaf pan. There will be a lot of batter so be careful. Do not overfill your loaf pan. You can make an extra muffin or two if you don't want to waste it.
  • Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle. Note that different ovens and altitudes may influence the baking time.
