{August 6, 2008}   Recipe: Low fat/low calorie banana bread

I’m always posting recipes for chocolate and as some of you do not love it as much as I do (blasphemers!) I am trying to find other recipes for you. My goal is to find a low calorie cinnamon swirl cake! Anyone got one?

This was obtained from [dietbites.com]

Preheat oven to 350° and spray two mini-baking pans with non-stick cooking spray. Place the following ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and gently mix by hand until smooth:

1 mashed banana (please remove peeling before adding to the bowl)
1 Tablespoon of Melted Butter or Margarine (we used diet but regular will do for about 60 calories)
1 teaspoon of Rum Extract
1 cup of Splenda
Dash of Salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 large egg
2 Tablespoons of Skimmed Milk

Add the following dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients:
3/4 cup of White Flour

Cook about 20 minutes – or until golden brown.

FOODNOTESTM: For those who do not like using sugar substitute, double the bananas and use 1/2 cup of real sugar. Another suggestion for those limiting sugar substitute is to use half real sugar and half sugar substitute.

Using the base of this recipe, other delicious warm breads can be created such as peach bread and strawberry bread. What about warm lemon bread with a sexy glaze and a dash of lemon zest on top?

Nuts may also be added to the recipe but be sure to tally up those extra calories.

Rum extract can be substituted with vanilla extract OR almond extract.
