Low Fat Apple Banana Raisin Bread

"This is a delicious low fat version of my mom's recipe. It yields 2 loaves. I'm a very busy person with small children and lots of pets, so I will offer my time saving hints; with a large spoon, mix the wet ingredients in a large bowl then sift the dry ingredients right over the top and stir slowly until combined. I also always have some sort of flavored applesauce snack pack on hand and that is what I use. It could be mixed berry flavor or apple cinnamon, even grape! They all work well and I use 2 snack cups."

  1. I was looking for a recipe to use overripe bananas and came across this one. Low fat also! Easy to make and my family loved it. I used only l cup of brown sugar. This is definitely a keeper.
  2. I love these PalmTree. I made these as LF/LC as I could using whole wheat flour and also SugarTwin brown sugar. I actually cut this recipe in 1/2 and made them into 8 muffins. I love the combination of apples, raisins, and banana. So very healthy. I used my own home-made applesauce that is made w/redhot cinnamon candies. A nice addition. I can see where the flavored applesauces you mentioned would be equally as yummy. Thanks and I"m glad I tagged and made these for Springs PAC'09
  3. Quick to prepare and delicious. perfect for late night baking for dairyfree school lunch treat
  4. Neither my husband nor I cared for this recipe :(


<p>I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my husband, David, 3 children, 3 cats and 2 goofy pugs. I'm originally from upstate New York and have lived in Florida for 18 years. The summers are very long here and you spend most of your time inside because of the terrible heat and humidity. Before becoming a stay at home mom, I worked for 6 years as the Catering Coordinator for The Belleview Biltmore Resort &amp; Spa, the oldest, largest wooden structure in the world, located in Clearwater, Florida. I LOVE cooking and entertaining. <br />Trying to feed a family of 5 on one income can be tricky at times so I am always looking for new ideas and recipes. That is how I happened upon RZ. <br />Cooking has become my passion for keeping me sane. I don't like being stuck indoors most of the year! The plus side to living in this climate is the yearly abundance of fresh produce. I have constant (and cheap!) access to most fruits and vegies all year round at numerous stands on the side of the road. <br /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /></p>
