This banana bread is VERY good and VERY healthy! It does tend to come out a bit dense for my own personal taste, but considering all the substitutions I've made to the conventional recipes, it's fantastic! Enjoy!
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup Splenda sugar substitute
- 1⁄2 cup regular Egg Beaters egg substitute or 1⁄2 cup egg white, only
- 2 medium bananas, mashed
- 2 tablespoons nonfat milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mix all ingredients together either by hand or with an electric mixer, if you have one.
- Spray loaf pan with Pam non-stick spray (or an equivalent), then pour batter into pan.
- Bake for no more than 45 minutes at 300 degrees.
- Test for doneness with a toothpick at 35 minutes, then every 5 minutes thereafter.
- Remember to subtract 10 minutes of baking time when using a glass pan!
4 stars for the original recipe, but 5 stars with reviewers' suggestions. I used about 3/4 cup Splenda; doubled the natural applesauce and added 2 shakes of cinnamon. I upped my convection oven to 325* and baked the dough in a glass pan for 45 minutes. The end result was a large, moist, yummy bread that we will enjoy many times.
Love this! Never used applesauce as a 'fat' before, but I'm hooked. Used Doves Gluten Free flour but as recipe otherwise. Great with Nutella & strawberries as a decadent but not too sinful dessert.
My favourite low fat sugar free cholesterol free banana bread for SURE.
