Title: A Better Banana Bread, Low Fat
Yield: 14 Servings
Categories: Bread


1 c Bananas; * see note
1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Plain nonfat yogurt
1/4 c Margarine; melted
1 tb Vanilla extract
1 Egg
1 Egg white
2 c All-purpose flour
1 tb Baking powder
1/2 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Salt
1/4 c Pecans; chop/toast
Baking spray with flour

Compared to a traditional banana bread, this one has half the sugar and fat
but tastes just as sweet and delicious.

* 3 small very ripe bananas, mashed.
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of an
electric mixer until well blended.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; stir in pecans. Add flour mixture to
banana mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into an
8-1/2x4-1/2x3-inch loaf pan coated with baking spray with flour. Bake at
350 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in
center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from
pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.

Yield: 14 servings (serving size: 1 slice).
