  • 8 oz non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice, fresh
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups banana, ripe and pureed

Heat oven to 350. Lightly coat 2 (9-inch) loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar, brown sugar and yogurt until the sugar has dissolved. Add the spices, salt, vanilla, lemon juice and egg whites or egg substitute.

Combine the flour, oats, baking powder and baking soda. Add it to the yogurt mixture, alternating with the banana puree. Do not over beat or the loaves will be tough.

Pour the mixture into loaf pans. Bake on the center rack for 45-50 minutes. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pans for 20 minutes then remove and cool completely on a rack.
