I love that banana bread is always so moist and delicious.
I also love the smell in my kitchen when banana bread is baking.
No Sugar Added Banana Bread
Bananas are the low fat fruit that famous for it’s potassium content.
Bananas are a favorite for kids because they are fun to eat. Cereal eaters like to add bananas to their bowl. And for those of us who cannot get enough, we add bananas to our bread.
I’m not going to lie here. Bananas do come with their own sugar.
The average banana has about 14 grams of sugar. That sugar in a banana is a natural sugar. Some experts say that because a banana contains so many good things in it, the natural sugar becomes outweighed in the scheme of things.
I like to use Greek Yogurt in my recipe for banana bread.
I am a Greek Yogurt fan and I love eating Greek Yogurt alone or in my recipes.
I am also using Splenda in my recipe. If you are not a fan of using Splenda as a sugar alternative, you are welcome to use your choice of sugar equivalent if you are use to baking with it.
Is banana bread a dessert?
Some folks like to serve banana bread as a dessert. Why not- it’s ‘sweet’ right?
I like to make my banana bread for breakfast. I serve it warm with some butter on the side. Banana bread for breakfast is especially popular when people are waking up to the delicious smell of it. Banana bread is one of the better smelling baking smells out there in my opinion.
You will need a loaf pan for this recipe.
You can use a nonstick spray or a softened butter or margarine to prep the loaf pan for nonstick. I have recently discovered silicon baking pans. I love the way that silicon loaf pans easily allow me to remove baked items. It is really easy to just turn a baked item upside down and watch the bread or cake just pop out.
