Variation: Healthy Oven Banana Bread or Streusel Muffins

One of my Healthy Oven customers, Susan in San Diego, sent me her banana bread recipe for a reduced-fat makeover. Her original recipe had 1 cup of butter, which has about 1,798 calories, 192 fat grams and 528 milligrams of cholesterol. Now we can all enjoy this American classic with a clear conscience. Banana bread is a prime candidate for add-ins, like 1/2 cup fresh blueberries or 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips.

KELLY SAYS: "Today I made banana muffins from Sarah's delicious recipe for low fat banana bread
I added a little streusel on top, and in the middle, for a little extra oomph. Yeah, I know that it added some fat back in, but I only used a little.
The recipe made 16 beautiful high-domed muffins and they were FABULOUS tasting! See Variations below for streusel recipe!"
