Whole Wheat Banana Avocado Bread

One thing thats a lot in my kitchen cabinet is wheat flour and all purpose flour, i have no idea how to spend them.With the intention of finding recipes for using wheat flour other than dosa and roti not a lot of creative recipes are there.And I don't want to spend the entire flour by making dosas and rotis it's going to take lot of my manual labor.A roti maker would solve the problem but I dont have one, it's in my future shopping list though.So easy recipe with less work is bread and cake recipes. Not so much interested in cake recipe as it has lot of sugar in them and I don't think there are any cake recipe with wheat flour. But on the contrary there are lot of recipes using wheat flour for making bread.So let me start with banana, avocado bread as i have both of them stocked in my fridge.So my dear family get ready for wheat flour attack on forthcoming days, sorry guys whole lot of flour is too distracting for me to concentrate on other recipes.....But my friend if you have any interesting recipes with wheat flour suggest me....
