Whole Wheat and Millet Banana Bread

I don't have a lot to say about this bread.  Except that the past week of my life was about a hundred percent better for having made it.  And that you should make it today.  :)

Whole Wheat and Millet Banana Bread

from Joy the Baker

makes 2 loaves

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk
4 medium bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raw millet, rinsed

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.  Spray two 8x4 loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together butter, oil, sugars, and eggs.  Beat until thoroughly incorporated.  Whisk in the vanilla, buttermilk, and mashed bananas.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.  Stir in millet.  Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients.  Carefully pour the wet ingredients into the well.  Use a spatula to fold the batter together.

Divide the batter between the two prepared pans.  Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.
