Healthy Low Fat Banana Bread

I have been making this delicious Banana Bread for over 30 years, when I first discovered it in Victoria Principal’s book, “The Diet Principle.” It is a winner for so many reasons. It takes a few minutes to prepare, is low fat and relatively guilt free.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter or vegan margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup unsifted whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Add yogurt to the bananas and set aside
Cream butter or margarine and sugar
Add the egg and mix well
Sift dry ingredients and alternate adding them with the banana/yogurt mixture.
If using the walnuts, add them last, and do not over mix.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Be careful not to over or under bake.
