I like this recipe because it is easy to make and has a stronger taste of banana than most banana breads. It is also a low calorie, low fat recipe. It creates a tasty, chewy on the edges banana bread. This recipe comes from a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook titled "New Dieter's Cookbook". You can also make this vegan by substituting one medium banana mashed/beaten till liquidy or 1 tablespoon ground flax seed plus 3 tablespoons water for the egg whites. It is very delicous and moist any way you decide to make it.

I have been using this recipe for years. Had to look it up because I can't find my cookbook. I make muffins. Make sure to not over bake and they will be moist. Also filling measuring cup to a rounded top with banana is how I like to make them.

This was very tasty! Excellent choice if you don't like nuts in it (and easy to add if you do!) This made a perfect loaf of banana bread and it was enjoyed up at my hubby's office! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Made for the Let's P-A-R-T-Y cooking event :)
