Skinny Banana Bread

This Skinny Banana Bread recipe has no oil, is low sugar, and just over 100 calories/slice! I found it years ago and it is the best banana bread recipe and low in calories.  I like to add walnuts but it will increase the calorie count.

Ingredients

  • 4 bananas, about 1 1/3 cups, mashed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (white or white-whole wheat)
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  • Grease a standard 9×5” loaf pan (I also like to line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper to make sure the loaf doesn’t stick).
  • Mash bananas in a mixing bowl. Add egg, vanilla, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon and stir well to combine.
  • In a separate small bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to banana mixture and stir to combine.
  • Gently stir in melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow cooling in the pan for 5-10 a few minutes before inverting onto a wire cooling rack.

Notes

You can also make muffins, it makes 12 muffins and you bake the 18-25 units
