My dh has high cholesterol and I'm trying to lose a bit of weight, so I modified several different recipes and added some ingredients to make it lower in fat, cholesterol, calories and sugar.
- 2 cups bananas, very ripe
- 3⁄4 cup fat free sour cream
- 1⁄3 cup honey
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons Smart Balance butter spread
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons applesauce (no sugar added)
- 1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- Mash 4-6 bananas (depending on size) to make ~ 2Cups. I mash a bunch and freeze in baggies.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and mix, being sure to mix the butter evenly.
- Pour into 6 mini loaves or 2 regular size loaves. These will rise a bit so allow room.
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes for mini loaves or muffins, 50-60 minutes for regular size loaves.
Delicious, Chef! Moist, not too sweet but sweet enough; followed recipe exactly except used Splenda, more walnuts & extra banana. DH loves it, he feels left out when I bake for others without high cholesterol problems so now no more. It's a keeper, thanks again...
Very moist! Added walnuts and chocolate chips. Yummy
No rating -haven't made it yet. Just wanted to share, I had good experience substituting butters with coconut oil and sugars with agave syrup. Coconut oil is solid but melts as soon as you touch it (it's so good on your skin!), so I melt it on defrost function in microwave to a totally liquid state. Did I say that it has NO cholesterol? Agave syrup has lower glycemic index then white and brown sugar, and honey. Try it.
