1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons ground flaxseed (optional)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup white flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup no-trans margarine (butter can also be used), softened
1 large egg
1 1/3 cups mashed very rip bananas (about 3 large bananas)
