Big Bird's Banana Bread

I subscribed to Sesame Street's magazine when I was 4 and fell in love with Big Bird's Banana Bread recipe. Mr. Hooper (remember Mr. Hooper??? Big Bird had trouble saying his name so he called him Mr. Looper) is the grownup in charge of turning on the oven and melting the butter (this was before microwaves).

This recipe was made for kid's who want to lick the bowl (no eggs) and can be made gluten-free with a basic GF flour mix.

Here is what you'll need:
3 peeled ripe bananas
3/4 cup honey
1/4 cup melted butter or vegan substitute such as Earth Balance
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or GF flour

Mash nanners up
Add melted butter, baking soda, flour and honey
Stir everything and pour in oiled bread pan
Bake at 350 for 1 hour

Don't forget to ask a grown-up helper to take the bread out of the oven and share it with your neighbors.
