Banana Mini Loaves

It's another banana bread recipe. I know I have tons, but this one really hit the mark. I love making them into cute mini loaves too, more ends to pass around! Truth be told John is a loaf end stealer. Leave a loaf out and it will be missing its bum from both ends soon enough.
He was outside working on the gigantic mulch pile that was delivered to our driveway instead of our lawn when I made these bad boys, so guess who got to steal the end this time! Don't feel bad for John, with 3 mini loaves there was still plenty of loaf bums to go around. Any guesses on how long it takes to move 12 yards of mulch? A freaking LONG time.

Curious about the lighting in these pics. See this post.

This has been one of my favorite banana breads for years. It fulfills all my grocery store muffin urges, and the mini loaves make a fantastic breakfast, free from complaining. I am very pleased to find your post.
Healthy meals

Delish! I'm excited that you used wheat germ too, since I've had a container of the stuff in my fridge for ages, and I still have trouble figuring out what to put it in. Banana bread is a great place to hide a healty dose!

I was looking for a healthy banana muffin recipe without having to run to the grocery store to pick up any special ingredients and this one worked perfectly... even had the sunflower seeds. Thanks a bunch.
