Best Ever Low Fat Banana Bread

Preheat Oven to 325
Grease Loaf Pan with 1/2 Tsp Earth Balance Margarine
1+1/4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Egg Whites
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Organic Sugar
1/4 Cup Natural Applesauce w/cinnamon
3 Medium ,Very Ripe, Bananas, mashed

Topping: 2 T Brown sugar + 1 T Earth Balance Margarine

Sift Dry Ingredients and set aside
Whisk together egg whites and vanilla
Whisk together applesauce and sugar in a separate bowl
Add egg mixture to applesauce mixture and stir to mix
Add slowly the dry ingredients to the egg/applesauce mixture
Add mashed bananas and mix together
Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan and top with topping mixture
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until firm when shaken.
Cool on rack for 1 hour
Loosen from sides of pan with a knife and invert on top of rack**Hint** place paper towel over the top of the bread when inverting to save the sugar topping (so yummy).

This recipe is very low in fat since applesauce is used instead of oil and egg whites instead of whole eggs This can be done with most bread recipes as well as the boxed mixes of breads and Gluten Free Boxed Mixes But, beware this is also high in sugar and carbs....moderation is the key once again :)
