betty's banana bread - with oil, butter free

a recipe by
Betty Bramanis

A dense banana bread dotted with chocolate - this rivals any I've had in cafe's. This recipe came to be when I had ran out of butter and this is my preferred banana bread recipe. I've given this recipe to others who enjoyed this when brought to functions. My friend who has diabetes shared that this recipe has a lower GI than regular banana bread.
