Not exactly a "healthy" recipe, at least not compared so some I've seen here, but:<br><br><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Banana-Strawberry Bread</span></b><br><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Ingredients:</span></span></b><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">1 stick of butter</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">1 ¾ cups of sugar</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">4 eggs</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">4 cups of baking mix, such as Jiffy or Bisquik</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">2 teaspoons of vanilla</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">4 cups of ripe, mashed bananas (the more over-ripe, the better)</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">1 ½ cups of chopped walnuts</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">1-2 cups of mashed ripe strawberries (amount depends on your taste for strawberries)</span><br><br><b><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Instructions:</span></span></b><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">In a fairly large bowl, cream the butter and sugar.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Add the eggs and vanilla.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Pour in the baking mix and stir until the mixture is well mixed.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Add the bananas and stir again until the bananas are well mixed into the batter.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Add the strawberries and walnuts. Stir them into the batter.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Grease a pan (I’ve found a glass brownie pan 15”x10”x2” works best, but a loaf pan will also work).</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Pour in the batter and spread evenly in the pan.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the center of the bread comes out clean.</span><br><span style="font-family:'&quot';">Allow to cool for 2-3 hours before cutting. <b>TIP</b>: After about 20 minutes, run a knife between the edge of the pan and the edge of the banana-strawberry bread. This will make the bread come out of the pan easier.</span><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>Notes</b></span>:<br>
You might have adjust the recipe for high altitudes.<br>
For a healthy alternative, you can replace the sugar with honey. Replace the sugar with 1 cup of honey. Measure the honey as a solid like you would the sugar. Also, you might have to adjust your dry ingredients up a little bit if you use the honey instead of sugar.

No problem. I like having one place to post it. Now I don't have to post it all over the place! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
