Banana Bread

This super moist cake-like banana bread is a deliciously healthy version using less butter, oil and sugar than most recipes.  Nothing is better than a low fat, guilt-free delicious treat!


We’re all finding ourselves at home these days looking for ways to stay occupied.  People are spending more time in the kitchen than ever before

If you look at social media, it seems like everyone is baking some kind of bread!  I know we are.  Two of our favorites are  Rosemary~Shallot Focaccia and Parker House Rolls

So let’s get baking!

You’ll need a cup and a half of ripe bananas, about 3.  You’ll also need 2 large egg whites, 1/4 cup of plain low fat yogurt (or low fat sour cream) and 1/4 cup of low fat milk

Simply Sundays tip: If you have bananas sitting on your counter that are on the edge of being over ripe, peel them and freeze them in a freezer bag.  Just let sit out for about 20 minutes before using them in a recipe

Next, we need 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of softened butter.  Place in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on medium low until well combined
