Yum! I used wheat germ instead of bran and then added in a handful of low calorie fiber cereal that I crunched up a bit. Also added about a 1/4 cup of Splenda and doubled the baking power per the recommendation of others. Made into muffins and they were done in 30 minutes. Topped them with a light schmear of tofutti better than cream cheese as it added a nice creamy element for minimal calories.
I used only all purpose flour cause I didn't have whole wheat. This bread is so healthy and it tastes great! I baked it for 1 hour. Thanks healthycook :) Made for PAC Fall 2011
I, too, grew up on the type of banana bread that was anything but healthy. I'm watching what flies into my mouth right now and this recipe caught my eye. I loved how moist it was, but not very sweet. I baked mine in one loaf pan and it did not rise very high. When sliced, it looked biscotti-sized. We enjoyed it anyway! Next time, I think I'll add a few tablespoons of Splenda and double the baking powder. Thanks for sharing!
