Got this from a HG email, have not tried it, but decided to post for safe-keeping :) She recommends serving with spray butter or cool whip. Prep time is a guesstimate

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients (both types of flour, Splenda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon).
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (mashed bananas, egg substitute, applesauce, and vanilla extract).
  3. Add wet mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir until just blended. Don't over-stir!
  4. Spoon batter into a large loaf pan (about 9" X 5") sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

This was pretty darn good. I used about 2 cups mashed bananas & so reduced the appleauce to 1/3 cup, and the splenda to 1/2 cup. I used part oatmeal flour/whole wheat flour & added 1/4 cup mini choc chips cuz I just love 'em! It came together easily & baked up great. I got about 10 slices out of it. Thank you for sharing!

Great recipe. I only changed a couple of things. I substituted 1/4 cup of the whole wheat flour with 1/4 cup of soy flour. (We're trying to get a little more soy) I believe you can sub up to 1/4 of the total amounts of flour with soy flour w/o any problems. I also added some wheat germ. (Only for added health benefits) Also added 1 tablespoon of canola oil. I'm sure it would have been fine without, but I worried about it being moist enough. To be fair, I never made it without it. My family ate the loaf in one day. Thanks!

This was a surprisingly moist, tasty bread. I made it for an office breakfast and it was a big hit. With so many people watching calories/weight, it was the perfect choice.
