Banana-Butter Bean Bread

I was able to hide a whole can of beans in a delicious banana bread.


1 1/2 cups butter beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup Silk vanilla soymilk
1/3 cup Smart Balance buttery spread
1 cup sugar
2 bananas, peeled
1 egg
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt


Rinse and drain a can of butter beans (or limas), and puree with the soymilk in a blender.

In a mixing bowl, mix smart balance and sugar. Add the bean mixture and remaining ingredients.

Spray the bottom of a large loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter in, and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for one hour, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
