Good For You Banana Bread

With all this snow, my seven year old son Vincent has been home with me more than usual, and the other day I taught him to make Banana Bread, which we all love.  I thought maybe my readers might enjoy the recipe as well! I wanted to provide a picture of the bread, but this very morning Vincent was eating the last piece!

Good For You Banana Bread

  • 1 cup Sucralose sweetner
  • 1/3 cup of butter softened (or a trans fat free margarine)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 2 or 3)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 35o degrees. Grease bottom of 2 small loaf pans and bake for 35 minutes. Or grease one large loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes.

By eliminating the sugar and adding in the whole wheat, this recipe is good enough for dessert or breakfast. If you have to have something like “icing” try a slice with some vanilla yogurt poured over the top.  Bananas freeze well, so next time you have one that’s going spotty, peel it and freeze until you have enough to make the bread. This bread also freezes well. You can make up a bunch of little loafs, and cut them in half and wrap individually for lunches on the go.  Be sure to pull it out of the freezer the night before to let it thaw.

Speaking of thaw….I can’t wait for this snow to go away! How about you?

  1. Hi,
    I saw your pic’s of the snow, do I need to send a bulldozer or a wagon train. I love banana bread, my wife buy old bananas when they go on sell. If we do not eat them before the peeling turns brown, she frezee them untill she has time to make the bread.
