The riper the banana the sweeter the taste. Try this recipe with yogurt rather than using buttermilk.

2 Large eggs
2 Large egg whites
1/2 cup Blood Orange Olive Oil from Olive Oil Etcetera
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
