Oh, and the streusel topping is simple and delicious! And could also be avoided if you want this recipe to be healthier...

Makes 1 loaf (16 slices)
2 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten
4 medium bananas (preferably very ripe)
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 c butter, melted
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and set aside.
Next add the beaten eggs into a medium bowl with the mashed bananas, sugar and better. Combine until mixed then transfer all at once to the dry mixture.
Just combine all of the ingredients, the mixture should remain very lumpy.
|Just combine until it looks like this!|
((((Insert Streusel Topping here if desired---see below))))
Pour into your greased pan and bake for 55 minutes.
