Low Fat Banana Decadence Bread

What you need: 

5 ripe (not over-ripe) bananas
3/4 cup demerara (golden unrefined) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup low fat vanilla soymilk
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 to 1/2 clove
sprinkle of salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips or nuts (optional)

What you do: 

In a large bowl, mash bananas, being careful to remove all peel strings. Add the demerara sugar and the vanilla. I like to keep it on the chunky side so pieces of banana remain after its baked. Mix this and then add the soymilk and mix again.
In another bowl, combine the wheat flour, baking powder, spices, salt and any additions you would like to add. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture but be careful not to over mix, or the bread will be dry.
Pour into a greased (or floured) loaf pan and bake for 65 minutes at 375 *F.
If you do add chocolate, this bread will not rise fully. Without, it practically doubles in size, and goes very well with a chocolate frosting or sauce.
This is a low fat bread, and 1 slice, or 1/10 of a loaf is 135 calories, 2.5 g fat, 5 g protein, 35 g carbs, 3 g fiber and 12 g sugar.
It also makes great muffins, bake for 25-30 minutes.
This gets devoured every time I make it, I hope your family loves it as much as mine does.

Mine turned out terrible. it was ust a big sticky blob, I dont know what i did wrong. I baked it longer than it said because it was just a mess at the time you all suggested. so I baked it about 1 1/2 hour and it was still just a big blog, just more brown.... :(


This bread is pretty good! Yum! Im eating it now fresh from the oven!
Used rice flour and it turned out slightly doughy but still good! Really sweet though, which is suprising

I also added in a kiwifruit and sesame and linseeds, turned out yum!
