If you ignore the nuts and the chocolate (and you can leave them out, if you want), this is a great, simple, fat-free banana bread recipe.
- 3 large (or 4 small) mushy bananas. Frozen-then-thawed bananas work great
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped nuts (slivered almonds are good)
- 8-10 squares chocolate, shaved (tiny chunks are okay)
Mash bananas well. Beat eggs and mix with ‘nanas. Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Mix bananas and eggs into flour to form a batter (don’t mix too aggressively). Add nuts and chocolate.
Bake in greased bread pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
