Healthy Banana Bread (Low Calorie!)
Banana bread can pack in a lot of fat and sugar. I prefer to lighten things up and enjoy a generous slice.
Servings: 32 slices
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease two 8×5 inch loaf pans (or 1 9x9 baking pan) with olive oil spray. In a medium bowl, combine flours, baking soda and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer (you can also use a food processor for this). Add egg whites, bananas, apple sauce and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until thick. Scrape down sides of the bowl (or the food processor container)
Add flour mixture and walnuts, then blend at low speed until combined. (You can also do this in a large bowl). Do not over mix.
Pour batter into pan(s) and bake on the center rack for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the banana bread cool at least 20 minutes, bread should be room temperature before slicing.

If you use one 9x9 pan, this recipe will give you 16 huge slices, or 32 normal sized slices. If you use the loaf pans, this recipe will yield 26 slices.
