Skinny Banana Bread

What’s better than Skinny Banana Bread? No, I mean it. I’m not being cute. What’s better? Because from where I’m sitting (on my couch, watching Grey’s, eating a fat slice of Skinny Banana Bread and a spoonful of Halotop), nothing is better. Nothing, I tell you!Skinny Banana Bread by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogPS if you’re going to make Skinny Banana Bread, you should put on your chef hat and use all the proper equipment:

Bread Box I Marble Cheese Board with Slicer I Cheese Grater Wooden Pizza Peel Beer Bread Kit I Bread Maker I Dough Scraper I Loaf Pan I Mortar and Pestle I Oil Dispensers I Raclette Cheese

Favorites? I am an addict for marble cheese boards, and one with a cheese slicer? All the better. I also have to have that bread maker. Homemade bread, warm – think those soft, warm doughy rolls that come out fresh at Italian restaurants. And finally, I wholly welcome that Raclette Cheese.

Skinny Banana Bread by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogWatching The Jungle Book was tough for me as a child. Strangely enough, It was a jealousy thing. The monkeys would peel open those beautiful, yellow bananas, toss the peels and swallow the fruit whole. I’m not sure why, but food always looks awesome in the movies. Have you seen The Goofy Movie? (Yes, I was practically swallowed in a pool of Disney film as a child). But in that movie, Max pulls this melty, cheesy, gooey slice of pizza out of the delivery box and taunts it at the screen. Oh, and he’s sitting on a water bed with fish in it as he does so, as if I weren’t envious enough. Like, what child doesn’t want a box full of pizza and a water bed full of fish?Skinny Banana Bread by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog But seriously, y’all . . . loving food through a television screen is sooooooo my talent. Can I get paid for that?  Skinny Banana Bread by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blogP.S. Turns out bananas are even better in person. Skinny Banana Bread by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog

The Ultimate Low-Cal Banana Bread

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 6 Slices

Serving Size: 1 Slice

Calories per serving: 104

Ingredients

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (400 calories)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (1 calorie)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (1.5 calories)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (1 calorie)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Truvia
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (7 calories)
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (9 calories)
  • 2 tablespoons Joseph's Maltitol-Sweetened Syrup (17.5 calories, or syrup of choice)
  • 1/2 cup tightly-packed, mashed banana (100 calories)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek Yogurt (40 calories, depending)
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce (37.5 calories)
  • 1 tablespoon liquid eggbeaters or egg-whites (8 calories)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients for the bread.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients for your batter.
  4. Now, combine the wet and dry ingredients. Be careful not to over-stir.
  5. Line a small, individual-sized bread tin with non-stick foil or parchment paper.
  6. Pour your batter into your lined bread tin and bake it in the oven for approximately 35 - 50 minutes. At 35 minutes, your bread will likely be golden brown. Poke your dough with a toothpick and remove to inspect for wet batter. If you find wet batter, continue to cook, repeating the toothpick test every 5 minutes. Once your bread has finished baking, remove it and allow it to cool.

      Thanks Alex!! I have to say, aside from my love for cooking healthy foods, I’m pretty much a Disney Princess wannabe. Which is your favorite movie? The Jungle Book or The Goofy Movie? 🙂

    Hey Jordan, do you think I can substitute Joseph’s maple syrup for regular maple syrup in this recipe?
