    Healthy Banana Bread

    Advertisements
    Last night I was looking online for a healthier version of banana bread. I found one and tweaked it a bit and it turned out delicious! The applesauce subsitutues for the oil and splenda obviously takes the place of sugar. I have never baked with a sugar subsitute but it tasted truly delicious

    Side Note: I used homemade cinnnamon applesauce sweetened with splenda. If you have unsweet, I suggest upping the Splenda to your taste, possibly from a third to a half, and adding some cinnamon for flavor. Would be GREAT with vanilla extract, also!


    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 1/2 cups mashed banana
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1/3 cup splenda
    2 beaten egg whites
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder


    Mix dry ingredients together, mix wet together. Add wet to dry, mix with your muscles until incorporated (batter will be lumpy), dump in a very well greased pan and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

    Enjoy

    Well, the website I got it from said about 85 calories for a muffin but that seemed low to me. All I know is that by getting rid of the oil, sugar, and egg yolk it, if not cuts down the calories drastically, is generally healthier

    I'm sorry I wish I could tell you. I made a loaf, not muffins. For muffins it would probably make 6 regular sized. It has been a while since I made this!
