Get Fit For 2011~Low Calorie Banana Bread~Mmm!


Do you follow Snack Girl? Lisa shares lots of tips and recipes for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I signed up for her emails a while back so I won’t miss anything! Here’s a recipe she shared for Banana Bread. I’ve been looking for a good low fat banana bread recipe for a while, and I can’t wait to try this one. I’m just waiting for my bananas to turn brown!

Oh, Lisa said I used just white whole wheat flour instead of the mixture of white and whole wheat (1 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour).

Buttermilk Banana Bread Recipe

(Makes 4 small loaves or 1 large loaf)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
3 mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325 °F. Lightly grease a loaf pan. Using a whisk or a fork beat eggs and sugar in large bowl until thick and light. Mix in mashed bananas, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until just blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake bread until golden brown on top and butter knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour (40 minutes if you are using the small loaf pans). Turn bread out onto rack and cool.

184 calories, 2.8 g fat, 35.9 g carbohydrates, 4.2 g protein, 1.5 g fiber, 204 mg sodium (one slice of 10 in large loaf)

For one small loaf, I divided the calories into 4 -

460 calories, 6.9 g fat, 89.7 g carbohydrates, 10.4 g protein, 3.8 g fiber, 510 mg sodium

probably about 6 small slices in the small loaf -77 calories per slice. I hope this is helpful.
