Skinny Banana Bread


Skinny Banana Bread | Cooking Classy

Banana bread has always been one of my favorite treats as long as I can remember. I could eat it every single day. It’s easy to make, it uses basic pantry staples that I always keep on hand, and it’s a sweet my whole family can always agree on. Plus it makes a great dessert to bring to any get together because who doesn’t love it? The only draw back is that more often than not it’s packed with sugar and butter, which I personally think is fine in moderation, but if you want to enjoy it more often this a great recipe to use. After adding all the nutritional info together (based on the back of my labels and Wikipedia via Google) this comes in at 139 calories per slices and only 2.3g fat, based on a 14 slices per loaf. Not bad right? To give you a comparison, a slice of Starbucks Pecan Banana Bread is 420 calories per slice with 21g of fat.

Try this one out, you’ll hardly notice much difference from this and your classic banana bread recipe. My husband said he couldn’t even tell the difference and my kids totally loved it! It’s worth trying at least because what have you got to lose, those overripe, generously speckled bananas might end up in the garbage anyway right? Don’t waste them and put them to good use with this delicious and moist, light banana bread! Read more »
