Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    In large bowl cream together 3 large very ripe bananas, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 apple diced very fine and 1/2 cup Splenda. Add 2 large eggs and mix well.

    Sift together the dry ingredients: 1/3 cup instant nonfat milk, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Add these to the banana mix and stir well. Add 1/2 cup nuts and mix. If mix seems dry, add up to 2 Tbs water.

    Grease baking pans well OR pour into muffin tins with paper cups to save the calories. Cook bread loaves 45 minutes to 70 minutes, depending on size of loaf. Large loaves take longer to cook.

Tips

This is a recipe handed down in my family. It predates the Great Depression. It was originally made with just sugar & bananas & heavy cream.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking pans well OR pour into muffin tins with paper cups to save the calories. Cook bread loaves 45 minutes to 70 minutes, depending on size of loaf. Large loaves take longer to cook. The bread is done when a tooth pick inserted in middle comes out clean.
