Fantastic Low-Fat Banana Bread

Fantastic Low-Fat Banana Bread created by Annacia

You will not even notice that this is a low fat recipe, it is that good! One loaf yields 24 slices with 60 calories each and 1 gram of fat for every slice. Add in chopped nuts if desired but that will increase the the calories. Make a fat-free glaze using 1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with 2-4 teaspoons fat-free milk then drizzle over warm bread. The batter can also be baked in four 4 x 2-inch mini loaf pans, for 30-35 minutes, these freeze very well! 2 eggs can be replaced with the egg substitute.

    Excellent bread. Adapts to minor changes with no problems. Works great with zucchini as well.

    Great banana bread. I used one half whole wheat flour and the other half white flour and it came out great. I only cooked it 45 mins and it was good.

    I made this for a bunch of my friends and everyone loved it! I also used 1/2 wheat, 1/2 white flour.

    Another great recipe, Kittencal! I used two egg whites, and subbed Spenda for half the amount of the sugar. I also used olive oil for the butter. Delicious!
