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.

Healthy Low Fat Banana Bread

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.
