Weight Watcher Friendly Banana Bread (Low Fat)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by healthycook26

I grew up eating a very yummy, but very fattening version of banana bread. Since starting Weight Watchers, I wanted to recreate the same type of bread without all the fat as well as incorporating whole grains. I actually prefer to make these as muffins so I have the perfect portion size every time. Each muffin or serving is 2 WW points.

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.
