Banana bread

Delicious banana bread made with whole wheat flour and ground flax seeds make a healthy and tasty treat! Here’s the recipe I tried…

Ingredients:
1 1/2  cups  mashed ripe banana
1/3  cup  plain fat-free yogurt
5  tablespoons  butter, melted
2  large eggs
1/2  cup  granulated sugar (splenda)
1/2  cup  packed brown sugar
6.75  ounces  all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups) or wheat flour
1/4  cup  ground flaxseed
3/4  teaspoon  baking soda
1/2  teaspoon  salt
1/2  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1/8  teaspoon  ground allspice
Cooking spray

Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed. Add granulated and brown sugars; beat until combined.

3. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through ground allspice). Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; cool completely.  Buen provecho!!
