Banana Bread

Serves: 12
Total Calories: 165


2 very ripe, medium to large bananas
1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia extract
1/2 teaspoon stevia concentrate
1 tablespoon lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt or buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


• Preheat the oven to 350°F. Oil a medium-sized loaf pan (7 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches).
• Mash the bananas in a small bowl. Mix the stevia extract, stevia concentrate, and lemon juice into the mashed bananas. Set aside.
• Sift the flour, leavenings, and salt together in a bowl.
• Beat the oil and egg together in a mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in the yogurt or buttermilk and the vanilla. Stir the mashed bananas into the liquid mixture.
• Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring as little as possible. Mix in the walnuts just before the flour is completely blended.
• Place into the loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until a toothpick or fork stuck in the middle comes out clean. Turn out the loaf and cool on a rack.

NOTE: For maximum flavor, use very ripe bananas (brown-spotted).
