Pre‐heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 5- inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream brown sugar and butter with a beater. Whisk in the egg, mashed bananas and PediaSure Grow and Gain Vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined.
