Branana Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups mashed, fully ripe bananas (3 medium)
2 tablespoons fat-free milk [I used 1% because that's what we had.]
1 cup Kellogg's® All-Bran® Original cereal [I used Bran Buds.]
1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened [Butter, of course!]
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
[1 tsp. vanilla]
1/4 cup coarsely chopped nuts [I didn't have nuts so I used 1 c. chocolate chips!]

1. Stir together flour, baking powder and soda. Set aside.

2. In small mixing bowl, stir together bananas, milk and KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN cereal. Let stand 5 minutes or until cereal softens [or while you complete the next step].

3. In large mixing bowl, beat margarine and sugar until thoroughly combined. Add eggs. [Add vanilla.] Beat well. Stir in cereal mixture and nuts [and/or chocolate chips]. Add flour mixture, stirring only until combined. Spread batter evenly in 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

4. Bake at 350° F about 50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before slicing.

Yield: 1 loaf, 15 slices
