Today was the first time I took a recipe from this tome and tweaked it. I was nervous, but it turned out AWESOME! I just wish I would have gone with my gut and only used 1/4 C sugar to help with pts value.
I had two bananas that I feared L would give me the stink eye for not eating prior to over-ripening, so I went to a recipe that brings me fond memories of home and my mom and sister and mornings with yummy warm banana nut bread (but I would pick out all the nuts).
This bread is sweet, moist, and best served warm. If you are a nut fan (get mind out of gutter dear readers!), go ahead and add some nuts!
"Nut" Bread (BANANA)
2 giant ripe bananas mushed with a fork
1 1/4 C bread flour
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C sugar (I'd only use 1/4 C next time!)
3 TBSP canola oil
3/4 C skim milk
Grease and flour a bread loaf pan.
Measure all ingredients into a large bowl. Mix until fully combine--be sure to scrape sides and spoon!
Pour into loaf pan.
Bake 55-65 minutes or until a pick comes out clean.
|Yum. Tastes like home!!|
I like fattier slices, but you could tweak your cuts accordingly!
11 slices = 5 pts+
12-15 slices = 4 pts+
16 slices = 3pts+
