Skinny banana bread and golden sugar (Pan de platano bajas calorias )











I am not very into low-calorie recipes, that is, of course I try to take care of calories in  all recipes (you have to take care of yourself) but I'm not obsessed. 

But when I made this banana bread recipe a while ago, I found it so delicious that I thought it was worth adding it to the blog.

Bananas are a fruit that you can almost always find the only thing the  last time they arrive here  very green but if you let  at room temperature  they will  mature so fast.

With all the madness about the pandemic (I try to stay sane and calm) I had not realized that we are already in Autumn, oh what happiness the heat was horrible this year.

With many of you I usually speak on Facebook or by mail, I send you all my love and a hug and thank you for coming.
Take care of yourself, and try to be at home. Love,

4 ripe bananas mashed
2 medium eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
1  3/4 cups all purpose flour (white or white whole wheat)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted


Method

Grease a standard 9 x 5 " loaf pan ( about 20 x 15 cm)
also you can line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper to make sure the loaf doesnt stick.

In a separate small bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to banana mixture and stir to combine,

Gently stir in melted butter. Bake at 350 °F (180°c) for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  8. Io adoro il banana bread, e non per il fatto che ti permette di fare dolci poco calorici ma perchè secondo me la banana dona una leggera umidità e una sofficità unica.

  13. La cucina è per me (e come molti) un momento di distrazione e di conforto in questo particolare periodo che stiamo vivendo di "prigionia" domestica.
    Cucinare mi distrae e mi rilassa...soprattutto se si parla di dolci...E Portare in tavola una delizia come questa che hai preparatao tu da davvero grandi soddisfazioni!
    Un dolce che amo molto questo, semplice e goloso!
    Un abbraccio

  26. Dear Gloria, such a wonderful looking loaf of banana bread - love the fact that you added all those warm spices. Good to know that the wheather has cooled down in your parts, so at least it is not so warm on top of all the other restrictions these days.
    Stay safe and sound, my friend!
