Preheat the oven to 350. Thoroughly grease a standard loaf pan with one teaspoon of Olive Destination All Natural Butter Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

In a large bowl whisk together thoroughly: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

In a separate bowl blend together 6 tablespoons Olive Destination All Natural Butter Flavored extra virgin olive oil 2/3 cup sugar 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Fold in until combined: 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2) 1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts or pecans (optional Combine the wet ingredients in the bowl with the dry ingredients until just incorporated - do not over mix.

Scrape the batter into a pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding to cool completely on the rack. By Rachel Bradley-Gomez
