Low Fat Secret Ingredient Banana Bread

“This is just delicious--moist and flavorful, chock full of protein, and LOW FAT! Oh, and it's at least partly whole wheat. What more could you want?!? This is a great way to work soy into your diet stealthily. :) Oh, and the secret ingredient is tofu. It replaces the fat in traditional recipes, and does a darn good job of it, too! :P Feel free to leave out the nuts. From "Tofu Quick & Easy"”
