If yall don’t know by now, I love bananas & I love sweets! This recipe incorporates both = perfect!! I found this recipe on Elissa’s blog. I thought I’d post it here to remind myself of the ingredient & directions so we could make it this week or weekend. I’ll probably half it though. Thanks for another yummy recipe Elissa!
Low Fat Banana Nut Bread
7 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce
2.5 c unbleached all purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter, softened
1 c light brown sugar
4 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 9×5 loaf pans with spray.
In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda & salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar with electric mixer. Add egg whites, bananas, apple sauce & vanilla. Beat at medium speed until thick.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add flour mixture & walnuts then blend at low speed until combined. Do not over mix.
Pour into loaf pans & bake on the center rack for 60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Let pan cool at least 20 minutes. Recipe says bread should be room temperature before slicing (I see this being a hard step for me to follow!!)
