Low Fat Banana Bread

This is a great low fat banana bread recipe. It makes about 20 slices, and it carries only 4 grams of fat per slice. It contains sugar, though. If you cannot have sugar, substitute it with a good artificial sweetener. I.e. the Capella Super Sweet liquid sweetener which is made of  sucralose. Now, here is an idea: If you don’t have enough banana in this bread, you could actually slice it, and make a banana and low fat feta cheese sandwich. That was my first recipe ever (at the age of 4!), and I still enjoy it!

Ingredients for Low Fat Banana Bread:

60 grams of low fat spread

  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of mashed banana
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup of skim milk
  • 1 cup of wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of white self raising four
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts (optional, but recommended)

This is what you do:

Pre-heat the oven at 180 C (350 F).

Mix the low fat spread and sugar together, and add the eggs, banana, vanilla essence and milk.

Next, sift together the flours and bicarbonate, and add the mixture to the banana mixture, mixing well, and adding the walnuts.

Prepare a good ovenproof baking tray by placing a baking non-stick piece of paper in the bottom.

Spoon the banana mixture into the tray, and bake for about 50 minutes, or till a tooth pick comes out clean after inserting it into the loaf.

Once baked, take it out of the oven proof tray, and let it cool down before serving.
