Squares of reduced fat banana bread made in a mini bar cookie pan
  • 1 1/2 large bananas, whole (very ripe)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar or sweetener equivalent

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 12 indentation mini bar pan with flour-added baking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana with a hand-held electric mixer or a spoon (depending on ripe it is). Beat in the sugar and the egg and continue beating until smooth.
  3. Beat in the vanilla and oil, then beat in the baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. By hand, stir in the flour, then stir in the milk.
  5. Divide the batter equally among all 12 indentations and bake on center rack for about 25 minutes or until golden.
