Lower Fat Banana Nut Bread16 Reviews
“A tasty banana bread that's also low in fat.” - by Julia Oh
Original recipe yields 2 -8x4x2 inch loaf pans
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray two 8x4x2 inch loaf pans with a non-stick cooking spray.
- Combine the fat free sour cream, egg whites, vanilla, bananas and margarine and mix on medium speed of electric mixer until smooth, creamy and well blended.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and light brown sugar into the banana mixture. Stir with a spoon until combined. Add more flour if necessary until a thick and rather resistant dough is formed. Fold in the optional nuts and raisins. Mix for 1 minute on the low speed of an electric mixer. Divide dough evenly between the two loaf pans.
- Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) until golden and the center tests done. Remove breads from pans immediately and allow to cool on a rack before slicing.

"To further reduce calories, I used 1/2 c Egg Beaters for the egg whites, 8 bananas, 1 c Splenda instead of the brown sugar, 2 T applesauce instead of the margarine, 2 T vanilla and 2 c each whole whea..." See moret and white flour. I baked at 350 due to lack of fat in recipe. I thought it came out pretty decent. I would make it again. I covered the tops of the bread with foil during cooking so they wouldn't over brown."
"I made a few revisions but this is a great recipe! First, I only made 1/2 the original size so that I just made one pan of the bread. I used 1/2 white & 1/2 whole wheat flour, added 3 tbsp applesauce ..." See morein lieu of margarine/oil, added 1 tbsp ground flax seed, used twice as many walnuts, added an extra splash of vanilla, and didn't use any raisins. For those interested, I timed the cooking and it took one loaf 37-40 minutes with no burnt top and a moist inside. NOTE: The whole wheat flour makes it a more dense bread and the lack of oil/margarine affects the consistency but neither change the good taste!"
