This banana bread looks really good. Any idea how many points/serving?

 

I think I might give it a try tomorrow.

I ran it through MasterChef (my gift to myself- I've ordered the light version too), and it said for 1/12 a loaf= 1.285 points

Ooh, thanks, Laurie! Can't wait to try this! I ate a slice of the b-bread that came with the fruit plate at Bob Evans the other day and have been wishing for a tasty low-fat loaf I could make at home. But all the recipes I have are fat-laden and the mixes at the grocery store didn't look real promising either. Thanks!!

okay, bad news. Mastercook screwed up the recipes when I first put it in and ignored the flour. The bread is actually 2.4 points for 1/12. Sorry!!

I went back and checked the nutritional facts with the recipe...

cal 130

fat 0

fiber 1

 

Comes out to 2 pts per serving, which is what I count it as.

 

It's really good though!

Hi! I brought a loaf of this over to meet one of my daughters' new school friend's mother, and her family LOVED IT! It freezes really well, and defrosts quickly in the microwave.

 

This is a great recipe!

I made this today-it rose really well and it is very moist. Best fat-free banana bread I ever made. Plus, my 2yr old loves it. Thanks for sharing! smile.gif

Laurie, thank you for this great banana bread recipe. My DH eats peanut butter and banana sandwiches every day and sometimes I need to use up some very ripe bananas. This recipe is a perfect fix for that.

 

I use whole wheat bread flour, 1 cup and 1/2 cup soy flour plus 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup splenda and it still tastes great.

It also makes the servings 1 point each.

I saw this recipe yesterday and I just happened to have some frozen banana thawing on my kitchen counter at the time. I ran out to the store bought some apple sauce and made it. MMM good! It was a hit around my house. Thanks.

Thanks everyone. I LOVE banana bread. I think I'll make Cybergranny's changes to lower the points and JFC's idea to use muffin pans sounds wonderful. MAkes portion control easier. I found from a nutrition program that 1/4 c of walnuts would not raise the points above the 1pt in CG's version. Just be careful if you eat more than one!

I forgot to say...I often slice a loaf of quick bread...wrap each in plstic wrap & freeze. Then put them in a plastic bag ...so easy to grab just one slice & it thaws in no time.Can do the same with muffins.

Hi All!

 

I have been making this regularly, and we love it!

 

I use whole grain flour, 1/2 Kamut and 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour.

 

I also use 1/2 cup honey instead of the sugar.

 

I double the recipe and make 2 loaves and we eat it up fast!!

Hi all. I've been looking for a low-fat/low-point banana bread, and this looks great! But...

 

I can't get applesauce here. Any ideas on what would happen if I eliminate it? Or, ideas for substitution? I was thinking to add an egg-white, if the issue is moisture.

 

Any thought?

rsawad,

Can you get fresh apples I make my own applesauce .I peel and cut up apples in about 8 pieces and put in a pan with a little apple juice or just plain water and cook it with some splenda . If I am eating it I put in some cinnamon for this recipe I wouldnt put cinnamon in it .the apples dont take very long to cook.I leave them chunky, I usually do about five apples at a time.

Looking at this recipe it already has egg whites and they are using apple sauce for the oil .

I have used baby food in the jars applesauce or baby food prunes.You might not be able to get that either though.

Sorry this is so long

I have used those small jars of baby food prunes with apples in some of my recipes. I have not tried it in this one, however. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

 

BTW, this is my DH's absolute favorite banana bread recipe. I am making it again today for him.

 

Boy, does he love this!
