In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg; set aside.
Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over moderate heat; pour it into a small bowl and whisk together with the bananas, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract.
Add to the flour mixture and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
