Low Fat Banana Bread (Wheat flour,butterless)

Low fat banana bread the name itself attracted me towards this recipe as there was no butter ,only egg whites no yolk.Nothing much has to be told about this recipe, a very simple and tasty bread.The original recipe used 3/4th of all purpose flour and 1/4 th of wheat flour.But I completely gave it up for wheat flour and as I had tried the Banana Cashew Cake with wheat flour too.The recipe sounded very good for dieters.I have made few changes to the original recipe.All loved each slice of the bread :-) and its easy for working moms to prepare this in advance and serve two slices for breakfast with a cup of milk.










Ingredients
bananas ripe 2 mashed makes about 1 cup
plain yogurt 1/2 cup (low fat preferably)
vegetable oil 1/4 cup
*light brown sugar 3/4 cup
Egg white of  2 eggs
vanilla extract 1 tsp
*wheat flour 1 1/2 cup
cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp
*raisins 1/4 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
baking soda 1/2 tsp
salt 1/4 tsp


Method
Blend the bananas in a blender and add in the yogurt ,baking soda and let it sit for a while you prepare the batter.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F and place the rack in the middle position.
In another bowl ,whisk together oil,sugar,egg whites and vanilla.
Sift the flour with baking powder,baking soda and salt.
Fold in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.until its moistened.Add in the raisins.
Grease a bread loaf pan and pour into it .Smooth the top with spatula.
Bake it in the oven for 45-55 minutes .Mine was done at 45 minutes.Insert a tooth pick and see if its done.
Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.Cut into slices aftyer cooling and Serve as breakfast or snack.




NOTES
* You can replace wheat flour with 3/4 th all purpose flour and 1/4 th wheat flour.
*I used white sugar butr the original recipe is light brown sugar.
* The raisins are optional not in the original recipe,I just added as my kids love it.
* You can try a total eggless version too,omitting the egg whites.
