I always buy my bananas green. I do this not to make them last but because I only like green bananas. When the last spot of green is gone from a banana and its all yellow, then its too ripe for me. Thus, I sometimes have 2 or 3 bananas left at the end of week. This screams banana bread! But banana bread can be a bit costly in the calorie/fat/carb department and I am counting my points plus (aka I’m on the Weight Watchers). So what I want is a lower point banana bread recipe that tastes like honest to goodness banana bread AND has a decent sized portion. I found this recipe from CheapHealthyGood.blogspot.com and it all sounded too good to be true. But its not! Look:
The only real change I made was adding about 3 TBSP of Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips and instead of skim milk, I used fat free half and half. I dropped this into my points plus calculator and got 6 points plus per serving (10 servings per loaf). Its only 5 if you leave out the chocolate chips! And let me tell you, this recipe is delicious! You would never, ever guess that it was on the light side. NEVER. I mean, really, does this look very low fat to you:
And considering you get 10 servings/loaf, that’s a slice about an inch thick – perfect! So pop over to Cheap, Healthy Good and give it a try. You will not be disappointed!
