Does anyone out there have a good recipe for Banana Bread?

I'm looking for something that's decent on the calories and fat (or can be modified to be).

Thanks to all you wonderful ladies in advance...

This is a little different - but is delish and nutrish

Banana - Apple Bread

1/2 cup reduced-calorie margarine
Sugar substitute to equal 1 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (I use whole wheat)
2 3/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup peeled, coarsley chopped apples
3 medium bananas, chopped (not mashed)
Pam cooking spray

Cream margarine in a large bowl; gradually add sugar substitute, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until thick and lemon coloured. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Fold in apple and banana. Spoon batter into a loafpan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 65 to 70 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

Last month, I found a regular zucchini bread recipe and I modified it to make it SBD friendly. It was pretty good and I used 100% whole wheat flour and no white flour. I would say the best thing to do is check out some of the recipes for whatever kind of bread you want then experiment. Use splenda instead of sugar. Use olive oil, I can't believe it's not butter and no sugar added applesauce instead of butter. Use 100% whole wheat flour instead of white flour OR use some whole wheat flour and some white flour.
