They had 3lbs. of banana's at Sam's Club for .50!!! So, it goes without saying that even with my little monkey man, we had about 6 overripe bananas left that were going south quickly.
I visited one of my favorite sites, www.allrecipes.com, and searched for a banana bread recipe. This is the one I found.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
Mix the above together in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together
- 1/2 cup butter ( I used reduced-fat version)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (I used 6 TBsp of Splenda Brown Sugar baking blend)
Then, stir in
- 2 eggs, beaten (I used Egg Beaters)
- 2 & 1/3 cups mashed overripe bananas
Now, add the dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Then pour into greased loaf pan (at least 9x5) and bake.
*Note: I added 3/4 cup of walnuts to my dry ingredients....no comments on nuts liking nuts, please!
The directions call for about 60-70 minutes cooking time. I covered my loaf with aluminum foil after about 50 minutes and it took another 20 minutes for a toothpick to come out clean.
YUMMY!! Give it a try...you just might be surprised.
Oh, and for my Weight Watcher friends, if you slice it into 12 pieces, with modifications, each piece is only 3 points!
