Hi, Does anyone have a low-fat Banana Bread recipie??? It's my favorite desert, but now that I'm eating light, I don't want to eat the ususal High Fat version of this bread.

I have made this several times and I love it. I have even brought it into the office - and no one can tell it is low-fat.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 cup banana, mashed
1/4 cup applesauce
- I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (not included in nutritional analysis below)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
2) In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Add egg whites, bananas and applesauce; stir just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3) Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Turn out onto wire rack and allow to cool before slicing.

If you do a search for banana bread using the function in the upper right corner of this board (make sure to search just the Great Food Board) you'll come up with tons of recipes...my personal favorite is CL's Jamaican Banana Bread, and I know a lot of people on this board liked Toni's Banana Bread.

The Jamaican Banana Bread is fabulous. It was on the cover a couple of years ago and it wasn't until I read about it being raved about on this board that i tried it - it is fabulous! Banana bread will never be the same. I do not have mastercook to post it but you could probably find it in the search.
