  • 2 large bananas
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Cooking spray for baking


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Add the bananas, canola oil, brown sugar, milk and vanilla to a bowl. Mash and mix together using a potato masher, making sure the bananas stay chunky.

3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add to the wet ingredients, along with the raisins, and mix until just combined -- don't overmix.

4. Transfer the batter to a loaf pan that's been coated with cooking spray for baking (or lined with parchment paper for less fat). Bake 45 minutes, or until a knife or pick inserted into the bread comes out clean.
