    Homemade Banana Bread

    Yields: 8 servings | 3 pts per serving (made with applesauce)
    Yields 8 servings | 5.5 pts per serving (made with Crisco)

    1/3 cup no-sugar-added applesauce (or Crisco shortening)
    cup sugar
    2 egg whites or Eggbeaters
    1 cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    tsp baking soda
    tsp salt
    1-2 mashed bananas (I use 2 - brown mushy bananas work best!)
    cooking spray (to grease pan)

    Cream together applesauce (or Crisco) and sugar. Add egg whites and mix well. Add in salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flower. Add bananas one at a time and mash w/potato masher or large whisk until mixture is smooth.

    Bake 350 for 45 minutes in greased loaf pan.
    Nutritional Info:

    (per serving, made with applesauce) calories: 137, fat: 0, fiber: .81
    (per serving, made with Crisco) calories: 247.5, fat: 9, fiber: .68

    The bread will be slightly chewier and will not rise quite as much when using the applesauce, but is still very good and definitely worth the 3.2 pts per slice. If you divide into 8 servings as suggested, the slices are nice and thick! If you want, you could even cut the loaf into 10 thinner slices and servings will be 2.6 pts apiece.
