Raspberry Banana Bread (Frugal Food Thursday)

Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday!  If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below! 

These recipes are also listed at these wonderful linkup parties - thank you to all the hosts for allowing me to link up!

During the summer, I love to cook with my kids! They especially like to bake - cookies and cakes and such.

Here's an easy recipe for banana bread - it's great for using up all those bananas that are turning brown. It also uses frozen raspberries, which occasionally go on sale at Publix. Watch for a sale, then stock up!

Here's the recipe:

(based on a recipe from

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 bananas, mashed
1 10-oz package frozen raspberries, thawed and drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and cinnamon, and set aside.

In a medium bowl, add the eggs, oil, sugar, and bananas.  Mix with an electric mixer until well combined and smooth.

Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture, mixing with a spoon until the dry ingredients are moist.  Fold in the raspberries.  Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 60 minutes, then cover with a piece of aluminum foil.  Bake another 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the loaf comes out clean.
