Renee's Kitchen:

So do you have some over ripe Bananas that need to be used up????? This is a wonderful Banana Bread Recipe that does not have any butter in it and only 1/2 cup of sugar.

Low-Fat Banana Bread
(makes 1 loaf pan or use for banana muffins)
4 large ripe bananas (1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas)
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tb. vegetable oil
2 ounces fat-free cream cheese (softened)
1/2 c. sugar
1 3/4 cup flour (I used 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour in place of all purpose)
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Mash bananas first and then add eggs, vanilla, oil, cream cheese and sugar. Mix well. Then add the rest of the ingredients and don't over mix. Grease a large loaf pan & bake bread at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Check it at 45 minutes and do the tooth pick check. This recipe make enough batter for 1 loaf pan and 6 muffins. I also sprinkle a mixture of brown sugar and white sugar on top of the bread before I bake it.
