I adore Baking III

I absolutely LOVE joythebaker‘s oatmeal banana bread. It’s just delicious.  Here is the recipe she makes with my few changes:)Low Fat Oatmeal Banana Bread

adapted from the Weight Watchers site, as seen on joythebaker

makes 1 loaf  of  10 slices, 4 points per slice (i make at least 12 slices, 2-3 points depending)

  • -1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (i use half whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp canola or walnut  oil (you could use applesauce instead)
  • 1 large egg, beaten (i use all egg whites)
  • 2 medium egg whites, beaten
  • 3 large bananas, ripe
  • 1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Grease and flour a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients including the oats and cinnamon.

2. In a smaller bowl, mash bananas with a potato masher or fork. Add oil and whole egg and mix thoroughly.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.  Batter will be pretty thick so stirring with a wooden spoon is probably your best bet.

4. In a medium sized bowl, with an electric hand mixer, beat the egg whites until medium stiff peaks form. (Stiff peaks mean that when you bring the beaters up from the eggs, the peaks stay. Medium stiff peaks is more like they’ll stay for a second, then come down.) Gently fold the egg whites into the batter in 2-3 additions.

5. Pour batter into pan and then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top if desired. Bake until top of loaf is firm to touch, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 20-25 minutes. Flip out and cool on a wire rack until cool.

Enjoy immensely. Warm with butter.

    okay, i’ll admit it. i really don’t see how “low fat” and “baking” go well together. i mean, really, no butter at all?
    but despite my skepticism, i made this banana bread this weekend for dan’s breakfast for the week. i tried a little myself — and i’m a believer! so moist and delicious (especially with a tiny bit of butter spread on a warm piece. you have to have butter somewhere.) i’m regretting my decision to give it to dan because it’s the only thing i’ve wanted to eat since i’ve been sick! i’ll be making this again very soon :)

    thanks for sharing! love you!
