is there ever a bad time for banana bread? i think not.

Last night, I was struck with the ultimate dilemma.  I had been cleaning up my dishes following dinner and there, right there on the counter, were some uber ripe bananas.  Banana bread instantly flashed across my mind.  I am a deep lover of banana bready goodness, but it can often be wildly unhealthy so I knew I had to play my cards right.  I headed to my cupboard and threw together this delicious banana bread goodness.

It even got high marks from my boyfriend, the ultimate taster.

Fat Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

  • 2 cups of flour (I used just plain ole white flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup of milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • As many or as few chocolate chips as you’d like

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine dry ingredients, and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix into dry.  Do not over mix.  Pour into a greased loaf pan and cook for 40 minutes or so. After removing from the oven, let cool for ten minutes before slicing.

It’s so good with a little peanut butter spread over it and it’s so light that you can eat a whole bunch and not feel all that bad haha!  Let me know if you try it out.
