1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 bananas)
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup fat-free milk
3/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 9x5x3 loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a fork to mix.
3. In another bowl, combine sugar, flaxseed and eggs. Stir to mix. Add the bananas, oil, milk and vanilla. Stir to mix. Add the flour mixture. Stir just until the flour mixture is absorbed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
4. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Transfer to a rack to cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
