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.

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1/4 c
light brown sugar
3
ripe bananas
1/4 c
fat free milk
1/4 c
apple sauce
1/4 c
low-fat sour cream
2
large eggs
1/2 c
blueberries, fresh
2 c
flour
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
cooking spray
1/4 c
low-fat butter or regular unsalted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
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.
3
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!
