BANANA LOAF (vegan)
This is a modification of a recipe in the Jean Pare "Light" cookbook.
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. ground flax seed, mixed with 2 Tbsp. water
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour (use up to 1 cup whole wheat...half WW and half
white works best...all WW doesn't cook quite right)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
"Cream" applesauce and brown sugar, add flax mixture. Mash bananas
and baking soda together, add to the other mixture. Mix dry
ingredients together. Stir wet and dry to moisten. Use a 9 x 5 inch
loaf ban (nonstick or sprayed with Pam). Cook at 350 (175C) for about
an hour until it passes the toothpick test.
Note: I usually add some vanilla as well. It's supposed to make 16
servings, but they are paper thin slices--so I'd guess 8-10 real
people servings. I haven't tried freezing it yet.
