3/4 cup white flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 T dried lavender buds
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

In another bowl combine:
1 T melted butter
1/2 cup honey (lavender infused honey if you have it)
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup buttermilk

Mix with dry ingredients and gently fold in:
1/2 cup halfed cherries (frozen)

Pour in greased loaf pan. Cook for 30 minutes at 325 F, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy. Do you have a favorite lavender recipe?
