Oatmeal Banana Walnut Bread - Low Fat

The key to this recipe is the molasses. A vanilla flavored oatmeal packet takes the place of vanilla extract although extract can used. Applesauce significantly reduces the fat. The oatmeal packet really drives home the fiber and makes it a bit different then most breakfast breads. Feel free to experiment.


Set oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan.
In a bowl sift together white and whole wheat flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl beat the butter with sugar and molasses for about 2 minutes.
Add in eggs, beat until combined.
Add in bananas and applesauce ; beat until blended.
Add in the flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moistened.
Spoon the batter into prepared baking pan.
Bake for about 1 hour, or until bread tests done.
Cool for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serves 8.
