Reduced Sugar Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Blessed Wyoming Mom

When my 10-year-old son was diagnosed with Type I (insulin-dependent) Diabetes, I had to alter some of our often-used recipes to reduce the carbs counts. Banana bread tops his list of treats, so I adapted our family's favorite banana bread recipe by decreasing the overall amount of sweetener and using half Splenda. This recipe makes the moistest, yummiest banana bread without being able to tell that the sugar is reduced.
