Low Fat Banana Bread recipe


Serves 12


  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • ¾Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray a full size bread pan with non-stick cooking spray, and lightly dust with flour.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Beat in bananas, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, mixing just until blended.
Fold in walnuts.
Pour batter into prepared pan do not fill more than 1/2 full – if you are using smaller pans, be sure not to fill them more than 1/2 full or they will overflow while baking.
Bake in preheated pan until golden and a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour.
Turn bread out onto a wire rack and let cool.
