Healthier Version of Banana Bread

I hate really ripe bananas, but I love banana bread. To spice up this recipe I added some ground up flaxseeds and whole wheat flour. It was delicious, and you couldn't even taste the healthiness. 

3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (can be reduced to 3/4 of a cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
2. With a spoon (or a potato masher) smash the bananas and mix in the butter in a large bowl

3. Add in the sugar, egg, and vanilla
4. Add the baking soda and salt
5. Finally add the flour, and mix as little as possible to keep your bread tender

6. pour the batter into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan

7. Bake for 1 hour
8. Cool on a rack before removing from the pan and slicing to serve
