Banana Nut Bread
12 slices (or 24 small slices)
We use applesauce instead of oil to lower fats and Splenda to lower sugar.
- 1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup natural applesauce
- 3/4 cup Spenda brown sugar blend
- 3 egg whites
- 3 medium bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup walnut pieces
Preheat oven to 350°. In 1 bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.
In a larger bowl mix the applesauce and brown sugar. Stir in the egg whites, mashed bananas and water. Now stir in the dry ingredients.
Pour the mixture into a loaf pan that has been sprayed with nonfat, nonstick cooking spray and press the walnuts into the top of the mixture. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Cut and serve.
