Big Bird's Banana Bread

This came from an old Sesame Street book we had at home. Daniel, my 4 year old, made most of it by himself for a preschool project, and it turned out yummy. I was surprised at all the healthy ingredients in it. I wonder if you could even substitute applesauce for the butter and make it even more healthy? Daniel loved being able to make this bread by himself, and he wanted to share it with everyone! :-) Such a fun kid project

Here is what you will need:

3 ripe bananas

3/4 cup honey

1/4 cup melted butter (use dairy-free spread if needed)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 big bowl

1 big wooden spoon

1 fork

1 bread pan (rub some oil around the inside of it)

1 wire cooling wrack (I don't have this, but it's ok)

1 measuring cup

1 set of measuring spoons

Here is what you need a grown up to do:

1. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees

2. Melt 1/4 cup butter (I did this in the microwave)

Here is what you do:

1. Peel the bananas and put them in a bowl

2. Mash the bananas with the back of a fork

3. Carefully add the melted butter

4. Add the baking soda, flour, and honey

5. Stir everything together with a big spoon until it is all mixed together

6. Pour the mix into the oiled pan

7. Bake for 1 hour

8. After 1 hour, put a toothpick into the middle of the bread. Is there some bread on it? If there is, let it bake a little bit longer. If there is no bread on the toothpick, the bread is done! Ask your grown up helper to take the bread out of the oven. They need to take the bread out of the pan and put it on a wire wrack.

9. When the bread is cool, cut it up and share it!
