2 very rip yellow peaches, peeled and finely diced

2 very ripe bananas, peeled

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (About 1 lemon)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder


1 cup walnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mash bananas and peaches and mix them with the lemon juice.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together and add the banana peach mixture, stirring well.
  4. In a separate bowl stir together the dry ingredients. Add to the banana peach mixture and stir in nuts if desired.
  5. The dough will be very stiff. Turn into 4 small loaf pans and bake for 20-25 minutes. Or turn into 1 large loaf pan and bake for 30-45 minutes.
  6. To test for doneness, insert a knife into the load; if it comes out clean, the bread is done.
