I wasn’t crazy about the Stevia Oatmeal Chocolate Chip/Raisin Cookies that I made a couple of months ago, but I didn’t want to give up on stevia just yet. I’m a huge banana bread fan, so I decided to give this a whirl and make a nice healthy loaf with whole wheat flour. At only 100 calories a slice, low in sugar and with whole wheat flour for some fiber, its a great snack or breakfast treat.
I was surprised at how moist and sweet the bread still was. The boyfriend and I loved it with a little butter, or even made into French Toast, like I did with my Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread. If you’re looking for a way to cut back on your sugar intake, give this recipe a try this week!
What you’ll need:
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup skim milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp stevia powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×5 loaf pan.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool in the pan for a few minutes to set. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a rack.
I swear that the hardest part about making homemade banana bread is waiting for it to cool enough to cut a slice. I have no patience when it comes to baked goods (and I’ve burnt my mouth enough times to know better!)
Is lowering your sugar intake one of your New Years Resolutions? Then give this recipe a go and let me know what you think!
Makes 16 slices.
