Bethenny's Boo Boo Banana Bread

It's National Banana Bread Day, and this yummy recipe gives you the perfect reason to participate. The recipe is named after Bethenny's Lhasa Apso mix, Cookie, whose nickname is "da Boo Boo." Cookie is Bethenny's favorite sous chef in the kitchen -- always by her side and picking up any crumbs left behind.

When you have browning bananas and don't know what to do -- here's your Skinnygirl solution. Don't have bananas? You can also use applesauce, pumpkin puree or butternut squash puree.

Boo Boo Banana Bread
Makes 1 loaf
1 cup raw sugar
1 tablespoon butter (regular or nondairy)
1 cup mashed overripe bananas (2 or 3)
1 egg
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 cup oat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1.  Preheat the oven to 350° F. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
2. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of a loaf pan. Put it in the bottom of the pan and spray it with cooking spray. Pour in the batter and cover it loosely with foil.
3. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, then bake for another 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out almost clean (moist crumbs are fine). Cool completely, then slice and serve.

Bethenny probably doesn't talk about calorie counts because she doesn't seem to believe in calorie counting. If you read her books, she believes in eating a little of things you like! Everything is okay in moderation. ;-)

I love the recipe's that are reworked here but I wish they would include calorie and nutritional content numbers.

Tried the banana bread recipe and liked it, overall. But, the recipe did not specify pan size. I only had a 9 x 5 and found that I could easily use a smaller pan. Will buy a disposable one next time. Also, it came out a little gooey -- maybe should have cooked a bit longer? Timed it to the recipe and toothpick was almost clean. . . .
Worth trying again!

It would be nice if you could give the Nutrionals for your recipe, especially for Diabetics and people on diets.

Hi there Bethenny!

I'm not sure cause maybe I missed it, but what size loaf pan did you use? Or Bethenny should I ask that question to Cookie, I love your Cookie.

Thank you Bethenny,
