Banana Nut Bread - Cooking with Honey II

I used the Betty Crocker cookbook recipe and replaced the sugar and water with honey. There are a few other minor changes based on how I actually make it. For instance, I always just mix the ingredients in a bowl using a rubber scraper. We really liked the character that the honey added to the usual banana bread flavors.

Banana Nut Bread
Add the ingredients in order...
1/3 c butter, mostly melted
1 c honey
2 eggs
4 frozen bananas, thawed and partially mashed, leaving some small chunks
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking powder
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c coarsely chopped walnuts

I used 2 loaf pans rather than one so I could make two thinner loaves (I like the outside edges.)
Grease the bottom of each pan.
They only took about 50 minutes to bake at 350F.
