FOOD: Healthy Banana Blueberry Bread

I'd like to share with you a recipe I morphed from about 5 different recipes created:


And when I say healthy... I mean

whole wheat.... oats... fruit.... low sodium... low fat.... no added sugar {Truvia was used}....


And not bad for your thighs.

And believe me, this bread IS yummy! It actually got a huge stamp of approval from the hubsters... as actually being something he assumed I purchased at the bakery. Whoah.... that's a huge compliment {on a healthy bread}!

It all started with the standard pathetic looking mushy bananas.

Most of you know how this story ends..... typical fate of said bananas = Banana Bread.

No different here.

But, I looked in my fridge and I had some blueberries I wanted to use too.

So, I changed it up a little bit and added a few other companions to the mix!

3 mashed very ripe bananas
1 cup blueberries
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup Truvia
2 1/2 tsp sodium free baking powder {Featherweight}
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 egg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Sift together all dry ingredients {except oats}.

3. Add oats to dry ingredients and mix together until well combined.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce, eggs and bananas.

5. Add blueberries to the wet mixture.

6. Gently mix the wet and dry ingredients together and pour into a greased {spray with Pam} loaf pan.

I added some blackberries to the top of the loaf.

7. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 350 degrees.
{Check with toothpick to verify loaf is baked all the way through.}


Store bread in refrigerator for a couple days {if it lasts until then}.


Your thighs can thank me later...


of course you eat this warm bread with some vanilla ice cream....

.... then.... not so low fat. Ha!
