This is my first recipe to post. I have modified it from the original recipe provided by Jane Fonda in her book, Cooking for Healthy Living. I have experimented with this recipe many times, using different flours and sugar substitutes. I also added chocolate chips! Each time was pretty good, but the last time it turned out dry. But this time, I have to say, it turned out quite yummy! :) So here's the original recipe with my BEST modification.
Jane's Recipe:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My Recipe:
2c unbleached flour~~~~~~~~~2c unbleached Whole Wheat flour
2tsp baking powder~~~~~~~~~ 2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda~~~~~~~~~~ 1/2tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1/2tsp salt
4 large, overripe bananas~~~~~~ 4 large, overripe bananas
2 egg whites~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2 egg whites, or 1 egg
3/4c sugar~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3/4c Organic Agave Nectar
1/4c lowfat buttermilk~~~~~~~~ 1/4c milk
1tsp vanilla extract~~~~~~~~~~ 1tsp vanilla extract
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ some chocolate chips!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl from the wet ingredients. Then mix dry with wet, or vice versa. Mix slowly, never too harsh. Then add chocolate chips.
Bake for 55-60 minutes and voila!! Now you have a moist and tasty banana bread! Enjoy!
