This low-fat banana bread isn’t lacking in flavor or moisture! Go ahead and give it a try; you’ll see what I mean. Don’t fear adding tasty additions such as blueberries, cranberries, chocolate chips (it’ll add some fat), peanut butter, walnuts, raisins, etc…keep in mind they’ll add more fat but we all must indulge a little.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup light butter, softened
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup fat free milk
- 1/4 cup apple sauce
- 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 2 large egg whites
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar and butter in a bowl, using a mixer beat the two together at medium speed until well blended. Add banana, milk, sour cream and egg whites, beat well.
Measure out the flour, be sure to level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir well. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture little by little until well blended.
If adding blueberries, you’ll want to fold them in now.
Spray your loaf pan with cooking spray and add the batter. Bake at 350 for about 45-50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow the pan to cool then flip over to remove the banana bread.
Enjoy warm or cold! I love adding raisins and walnuts to mine, the crunch of the walnuts adds texture, not to mention walnuts are healthy!
