Looking for a way to use up ripe bananas? Banana bread certainly fills the bill, but most recipes are loaded with fat. We've slimmed down our version by cutting back on the margarine and we added whole wheat flour, rolled oats,and blueberries for texture and color. For a unique-looking loaf, bake the bread in a coffee can. Fill the can about 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the dough, and reduce the baking time by 5 to 8 minutes.
