Tasty Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Cactus Arm

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.
