Low-Fat Banana Bread
From Cook's Country
We wanted to find a way to make a low-fat banana bread recipe that produced the rich flavor and texture of the best full-fat versions. Roasting the bananas in the oven brought out their natural sweetness, so we could use less sugar in our Low-Fat Banana Bread. Just a bit of oil combined with fat-free cream cheese gave our banana bread good moisture, texture, and structure. Traditional banana bread has 290 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 6 grams of saturated fat per one-inch slice. Our Low-Fat Banana Bread has 200 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 0.5 grams of saturated fat per one-inch slice.
Makes one 9 by 5-inch loaf
Adding more than 1 1/2 cups of the roasted bananas to the batter will result in a dense, gummy loaf.
