Low Fat Banana Chocolate Soufflé


  • 2 egg whites (or an equivalent amount of liquid egg whites)
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or paste
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
  • Butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Coat six six-ounce ramekins with sugar and butter and put them on a baking sheet.
  3. Mash the vanilla and bananas together.
  4. Sift the salt, cocoa powder and cornstarch over the vanilla-banana mixture. Stir.
  5. Put the egg whites and some sugar in a bowl and beat them together until soft peaks form.
  6. Fold a third of the egg whites into the banana mixture. Fold the rest of the egg whites in.
  7. Spoon the mixture into the ramekins.
  8. Using your finger, remove any butter, sugar or batter along each ramekin’s collar. This will ensure that the soufflés will rise straight up.
  9. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  10. Serve at once.
