Here is our recipe, you have the option to add more or less sugar, and use whole eggs or just whites. The resulting bread is great either way! Thanks to my friend and fellow Registered Dietitian Kimberly Mirsky for this easy recipe:
3 large, well ripened bananas
1 egg or 2 egg whites
2 tbsp canola oil
1/3 cup milk
1/3 to ½ cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
¾ cup white flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.Mash bananas with a fork.
3.Add egg, oil, milk, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat well.
4.Gently blend the flour into the banana mixture and stir until moistened, about 20 seconds.
5.Pour into a 4” x 8” loaf pan that has been lightly oiled or treated with cooking spray.
6.Bake for 45 min or until toothpick comes out clean.
7.Let cool 5 min before removing from pan to cooling rack.
Note: I often make two mini-loaves instead of one regular sized-one. Mini-loaves bake for about 40 minutes. Today I doubled the recipe.
Today's Tip: Cook with your kids! Let them prepare a healthy item with you and they may be more excited to try it.
