Recipe: Banana Bread

A breakfast treat from Cooking Light.  Not that this can masquerade as a healthy breakfast on par with low-fat cottage cheese and fresh fruit (which is overrated anyway but highly recommended by the trainer), but it's wonderful.  The Bananas Foster Bread is also a treat.    You give me 3 bananas that are 'questionable' and I'll give you a loaf.

1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup plain (or vanilla) fat-free yogurt
5 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6.75 oz (1 1/2 cup) flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Preheat over to 350.  Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, beat with mixer at medium.  Add sugars.  Beat until combined.  Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through allspice) in a smaller bowl.  Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended.  Pour batter into 9x5 loaf pan coated with cooking spray (line pan with foil to make removal easier).  Bake for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove from over; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack.
