Banana Bread

Tip: freeze old, over-ripe bananas; they turn dark/black in the freezer. Defrost them, and the bananas are already mushy, easy to pop open, and perfect for use in baking.
High altitude tips: slightly decrease oil, baking powder, sugars; slightly increase flour, liquid.

2 1/2 C flour
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 t salt
3 t baking powder
1 1/4 C mashed bananas (~4 bananas)
3 T veg oil
1/3 C milk
1 egg
Optional additions: Chocolate chips, chopped nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla.

Heat oven to 350.
Grease and flour 2 loaf pans (or use cooking spray).
Mix all ingredients together and divide between pans.
Bake 55-65 min.
