Yield: 14 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Bananas; * see note
½ cup Sugar
½ cup Plain nonfat yogurt
¼ cup Margarine; melted
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 Egg
1 Egg white
2 cups All-purpose flour

Compared to a traditional banana bread, this one has half the sugar and fat but tastes just as sweet and delicious.

* 3 small very ripe bananas, mashed.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended.

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; stir in pecans. Add flour mixture to banana mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into an 8-1/2x4-1/2x3-inch loaf pan coated with baking spray with flour. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack.

Yield: 14 servings (serving size: 1 slice).
