Deceptively Delicious Banana Bread

Submitted by: SARAHTHOMAS1

Introduction

I realized half way through that I didnt have eggs, so I made it without. The recipe calls for 2 lg egg whites, but was perfectly fine with none. You can also use veg oil if you prefer. A great snack anytime of day, my 2 yr old loves it and has no idea there is cauliflower in it!!! We only eat a small slice as our serving size so that is what is calculated, you may eat more if you have it for breakfast though....enjoy!

  • I use Almond extract insetad of vanilla, and I love all purpose white rice flour and almond flour instead. I also add some chocolate chips for a desert treat. My whole family loves it. I add extra cin and its so much better. I'm going to try the applesause and sweetpotato next! <3 - 7/20/12

  • Mine came out pudding-like in the center even after cooking for 60 mins at 350; Used the 2 egg whites and followed everything else to the letter. I MAY have had a about 1/8 cup more of banana puree than needed. But would that matter so much? - 3/2/12

  • I have no kids - but I LOVE this cookbook. I've been experimenting with the various recipes. This time, I subbed in apple sauce for oil, sweet potatoe puree for cauliflower and added in pumpkin pie spice (1 tsp) with the cinnamon. SO GOOD and perfect for fall. - 10/5/11

  • I love this recipe...however I still can't get used to the "whole wheat" flavour so next time I'll stick to just white and gradually add a bit more whole wheat every time I bake it. - 1/19/09
