“This is a delicious recipe from the cookbook "Eating For IBS" by Heather Van Vorous. Not only is it the best banana bread I've ever tasted, it's low fat and very safe for people with IBS! If eggs aren't a problem for you feel free to substitute 3 eggs for the 6 egg whites. Please note that the bananas have to be super-ripe for this recipe. IF THEY'RE NOT BLACK, THEY'RE NOT READY! This recipe doubles or triples easily, and extra loaves freeze well.”
