Low Fat Banana Bread

Makes 12 Servings


2 eggs

2/3 cup white sugar

2 very ripe bananas, mashed

1/4 cup applesauce

1/3 cup nonfat milk

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/4 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a full size bread pan with non-stick cooking spray, and lightly dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Beat in bananas, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, mixing just until blended.
  6. Fold in walnuts.
  7. 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.
  8. Bake in preheated pan until golden and a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean; about 1 hour.
  9. Turn bread out onto a wire rack and let cool.
