This banana bread tastes just like grandma's old-fashioned recipe, but with the added bonus of chocolate glaze! We all loved it!
Serves 16 ( 5 points +)
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. butter, softened
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1/4 c. skim milk
- 1/4 c. reduced-fat sour cream
- 2 egg whites
- 2 c. flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2-1/2 T. half and half
- 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped ( I used mini chocolate chips)
- Preheat oven to 350 and spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray
Combine sugar and butter in a mixing bowl and beat until blended well. Add bananas, milk, sour cream, and egg whites.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat until just blended. ( do not overbeat). Spoon batter into loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cook in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
Place half and half and chocolate in a microwave -safe dish. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring every 20 seconds. Cool slightly. Spread over bread.
