Banana Bread The Lighter Way – Recipe

Trying to figure out what to do with all those ripe bananas? Food Nation Radio Network found out it IS possible to make banana bread without butter or oil and it comes out moist and delicious. I had a couple of ripe bananas sitting around, so I threw this together and crossed my fingers. It’s a keeper.

 

Ingredients (organic, if possible)

1 pat of butter
2 large ripe bananas
1/2 cup lowfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup applesauce
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp real vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp allspice
Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 x 14 loaf pan with a pat of butter. In a medium bowl, mash bananas. Add yogurt, applesauce, beaten egg and vanilla. In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and allspice. Whisk the dry ingredients to combine. Stir wet ingredients with a fork until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon, scraping the bottom of the bowl and sides. Try to do this without stirring too long or gluten will develop making your bread tough. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out nearly clean. (Mine took 52 minutes.) Allow to cool for ten minutes, run a knife around the edge of the bread and invert onto a rack. Enjoy.

Kraft Mac & Cheese Does NOT Contain GMO Wheat – Audio

UDATE: The distribution company that Kraft says was not authorized to inaccurately label and distribute its products has taken the Kraft products down from their website.

UPDATE: The story we spoke about in this broadcast has since been amended several times. You can see the screenshots before and after our broadcast on our Facebook page. (See the Facebook click-through on the right side of this page.)

We are watchdogs as far as GMOs are concerned, but when stories appear on the internet that are inaccurate it hurts everyone who supports GMO labeling efforts. One such story recently appeared about Kraft Foods saying their Macaroni and Cheese product shipped to the U.K. contains GMO wheat.

Here’s why this story is inaccurate:
