Well low fat unless you put chocolate chips in it, which I did, but hey we had them lying around.
Seriously though, this banana bread is GOOD! I enjoyed a slice this morning with a pumpkin pie smoothie (delicious), while I scrambled to get some wedding stuff done before work…. place cards sooo close to being done.
Low Fat Banana Bread
recipe from Joy the Baker
makes 1 loaf
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp canola
1 large egg, beaten
2 medium egg whites, beaten
3 large bananas, ripe
1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients including the oats and cinnamon.
In a smaller bowl, mash bananas. Add oil and whole egg and mix thoroughly.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Batter will be fairly thick.
In a medium sized bowl, with an electric hand mixer, beat the egg whites until medium stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter in three additions. If you want at this point you can do as I did and add a handful of chocolate chips.
Pour batter into pan and bake until top of loaf is firm to touch, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Flip out and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes.
