Banana Almond Breakfast Bread

I got this idea from a friend who can't stand bananas but will eat them in bread! I decided to make a breakfast bread. You might be asking why is this is a breakfast bread well technically I guess it is not but it is got four bananas in it and about 2/3 cup of almonds, which is a lot of protein. It is also low in sugar so I think it's a perfect for breakfast!
• 2 cups unbleached flour
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1/4 cup canola oil
• 1/2 cup water
• 4 ripe bananas
• 1 tsp vinalla extract
• 2/3 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients together with electric mixer or stand mixer. As seen below.

Then add the oil and water one at a time mix well, add the bananas next followed by the vanilla mix well. Finally add the almonds and mix lightly you don't want the almonds to get to mashed up.
