The recipe was originally published in the June-July 2013 issue of Simple & Delicious. Time does not include cooling time. Diabetic Exchanges = 2 starch, 1/2 fat. ENJOY!"

This is really fabulous. It has a slightly sticky doughy texture of a typical beer bread, but with a hint of banana flavor too. I used a wheat beer, room temp since that's the way I always do beer bread. I also used 1/2 white wheat flour and 1/2 regular all purpose white flour. I almost left out the salt on the top since I planned to use this as breakfast bread, but I'm glad I used some kosher salt on the top. I really adds another layer to the flavors. My only issue is that the bottom crust was a bit hard to cut through, but that wasn't a big deal. Wonderful slightly warmed in the microwave with a drizzle of honey on it.
