This banana bread is trans fat free, low in fat, moist and delicious!

Superior banana bread

375 degrees
2 (9x5x2) loaves or 4 mini-loaves

Ingredients:

1 cup banana, mashed
1 cup sugar
cup applesauce
cup vegetable oil
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 cup of milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup ground whole oats*
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
tsp salt
1 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Directions:

1. Add the lemon juice to the milk and set aside

2. Blend all of the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.

3. Mash the banana and use an electric mixer to blend it with the sugar. Add the applesauce and vegetable oil and continue to blend.

4. Add the lemon juice/milk mixture (which will have curdled slightly) to the batter and blend. Add the eggs and beat thoroughly.

5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet batter, one cup at a time, continuing to mix it until it is well blended.

6. Pour the batter into well-greased loaf pans. You may either use 2 full-sized pans or 4 miniature loaf pans.

7. For the full size pans, bake at 375 degrees (350 for dark or coated pans) for approximately one hour until the bread is browning on top and a toothpick or knife stuck in the center comes out clean. If you are using mini pans, bake at 350 degrees (325 for dark or coated pans) ) for approximately 40 minutes until the bread is browning on top and a toothpick or knife stuck in the center comes out clean.

8. Cool for about 10 minutes, then remove from loaf pans and allow to cool completely before storing or eating.

 *Place oatmeal in a blender or food processor to grind it.
