 * 1/3 cup milk

* 2-3 medium bananas

* 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil ( Substitute: 1 Tablespoon of oil & 2 Tablespoons of applesauce)

* 1 egg ( Substitute: 1 egg worth of egg sub. such as Egg Beaters)

* 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

* 1/2 cup granulated sugar

* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

* 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder

* 1 tsp. salt
