Banana Bread Recipe

Guest Author - Jennifer Murray

Bananas are not only a good source of magnesium and potassium, but also A, B, and C vitamins, and are also a great source of fiber, with one medium banana containing 3 grams of fiber. Bananas are also thought to boost mood and energy and help reduce water retention. Bananas contain no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

This Banana Bread is very easy to make and has lots of flavor. You can try it for breakfast with scrambled eggs for a burst of protein to get you going in the morning or just eat it as a snack when you're in a hurry. It's also a hit with kids. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 slightly beaten egg whites
  • 1 cup mashed banana (3 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil

    Directions

    1. Lightly coat an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

    2. In a separate bowl, stir together egg whites, banana, sugar, and oil. Add banana mixture to flour mixture all at once. Stir together just until moistened. The batter should be slightly lumpy. Pour/spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.

    3. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

    4. Cool on a wire rack for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

    Tip: My family and I slice and eat this right away after cooling, but it is best to wrap and store the bread overnight before slicing.
