This recipe is from my cookbook, There IS Life After Lettuce, which I designed for heart patients and diabetics as my husband has heart problems and my two co-authors, Pepper Durcholz and Alberta Gentry (now deceased) were diabetic. It is also low calorie.
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Stevia (I used to use Sugar Twin, but they don’t make it any more)
1/3 cup margarine
1 egg plus 2 egg whites (if not worried about eggs, use 2 whole eggs)
1 tsp. baking soda (add 1/2 tsp. baking powder as dough doesn’t rise as much with Stevia)
2 cups flour
1\4 cup skim milk (or 2 % if you don’t have skim)
3/4 tsp. vinegar
3 ripe bananas mashed (very ripe are best)
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Blend sugar, Stevia, and margarine. Add eggs and mix well. Sift flour, soda, and baking powder into bowl and stir. Mix milk and vinegar and then add to mixture. Fold in bananas. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees in a greased 9 X 5 loaf pan. I like to line the pan with foil before adding batter. Test with toothpick. When done, let it cool, then cut into 20 slices. Keep in refrigerator as there is not enough sugar to preserve it at room temperature.
If you add 1 cup walnuts, you will add 38 calories and 3.7 gm. fat per slice.
