Banana Bread – With Walnuts & Chocolate Chips
Makes 12 servings
From Betty Crocker’s Cookbook (1976) with some revisions: substituted 1/2 c. flaxseed meal for 3 Tbsp salad oil (it really works!); reduced sugar from 1 cup to 2/3 cup; reduced salt from 1 tsp to 1/2 tsp; and reduced nuts from 1 cup to 1/2 cup. I added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to this recipe. This has amazing flavor, it’s wonderful. Keep healthy and fit by enjoying some low fat banana nut bread!
