Egg-less Strawberry Flavoured Banana Bread (Low Fat)

This home-made Banana Bread is easy-to-make and a healthy breakfast for the family. The banana bread bought from the stores are high in calories and fat. So I prefer to make this at home rather than buying from the stores. This recipe is low-fat and egg-less - I used flavoured yogurt, corn starch and mashed banana instead of eggs.

Ingredients - Serves 8
  • Mashed banana - 1
  • Strawberry yogurt - 1/2 cup (you can use mashed fresh strawberries) 
  • All purpose flour (maida) - 1 1/2 cups
  • Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Brown sugar or regular sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Corn starch - 1 tsp mixed in 1/4 cup water
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder or Cinnamon powder - 1/4 tsp

  • Pre-heat the conventional oven at 350 F
  • Mix all dry ingredients in a big bowl - flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt
  • In an another bowl mix all wet ingredients well - oil, vanilla extract, corn starch with water, mashed banana and strawberry yogurt
  • Pour wet ingredients to dry and mix well
  • Grease the baking tray with butter or oil
  • Pour the cake batter into the baking tray
  • Bake for 40 minutes (or until a toothpick comes clean when inserted into the bread)
