Low Fat Banana Bread


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 4 ripe bananas - peeled and mashed
  • 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 2 cups unbleached - all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups raisins


Beat the eggs and the brown sugar together until foamy and the sugar is somewhat dissolved.

Stir in the applesauce, bananas and buttermilk mixing well between each addition.

Sift the dry ingredients together and stir into the liquids along with the raisins.

Spray a 9" loaf pan with nonstick spray and spoon in the batter, smoothing the top out with a spatula.

Bake on the middle rack of a preheated oven until deep golden, the center bounces back to your touch and a skewer comes out clean (or with crumbs) rather than wet.

Check the bread after 45 minutes but it will usually take at least one hour.
