Low Fat Chocolate Banana Bread

Low Fat Chocolate Banana Bread

This is a really yummy banana bread. It's great hot, right out of the oven and I love banana bread with butter on it. (not low fat anymore, but oh well!!) It would probably be good with walnuts added.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
2 large mashed bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom of an 8-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar, eggs, oil and applesauce at medium speed until mixed (use an electric mixer or stand mixer). Beat in vanilla. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; beat into sugar mixture at low speed just until combined. Stir in bananas and chocolate chips.

3. Spoon batter into loaf pan. Bake 60-70 minutes. Cool 10 minutes then remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

ooh I love it! I have a chocolate-banana bread recipe that I've been making for some time but it is far from low-fat! This sounds like a great alternative :) I'll have to try it soon.

Mmm, chocolate banana. I'll just forget the "low fat" part. ;)
