I have made this many times and have it in the oven now. But this time I added about a 1/4 cup of cocoa for chocolate banana bread. I took a peek and it looks wonderful. I don't think the addition will alter the points but someonne can correct me if I am wrong. I know what I am having for breakfast tomorrow! ;)

 

update, the chocolate version is great. Makes me wonder how it would be to add the cocoa powder and replace the banana with pumpkin?? I'll try it next time.

Not sure about this on. I made the recipe using strawberry applesauce and made muffins instead of a loaf.

 

It was dry and not very sweet. I may try again adding raisins and maybe cooking time reduced.

I made this recipe last week. The only substitution that I made was that I used yogurt instread of applesauce. I enjoyed the recipe, but I did think it was a little too sweet, so I will play around with the sugar measurement. I made muffins so that I could freeze some for snacks.

I tried this again using mini loaves (made 2) instead of muffins and reduced cooking time plus used regular unsweetened applesause instead of flavored.

 

Wow! what a difference! it was moist and delish. I took a loaf to moms =)

 

Ill try w/splenda maybe to lower the count.

I made these yesterday, as mini muffins (24...1 pt each I guestimate!). The first one was quite bland to me (like it needed salt in the recipe). I ate 2 more, and with each one, my opinion improved. By the time I ate #4 and #5 for breakfast, I was hooked! I still will add a pinch of salt to the batter next time I make them...but they are sweet and tasty!

Thanks!

Just made this tonight... YUM!!!

 

I doubled the applesauce for moisture and doubled the cinnamon for flavor.

 

I only baked it for 42 minutes, as the fork was coming out dry and I think I caught it just in time.

 

A KEEPER FOR ME!!!

I've made this a few times now and really like it. However, the loaves are pretty flat. Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe a little more baking powder would fluff them up?

Big Giant BUMP!!! I made this yesterday...it's been a while since I last made it! Excellent, yet again! I did change it a bit, used 1 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat. Then used the "Splenda Blended" instead of straight sugar. I'm not sure if all those changes would make it "1 pt rather than 2? What do you think?confused.gif Excellent, as I said! I toasted 2 pieces this morning, and put 1 tbsp peanut butter (divided) on each slice. Oh my! So good!

 

Enjoy!

What does "bumping up" mean? Sorry, I have seen this on several posts, and I am still new to the terminology here :embarrass

 

Thanks for the clarification. This recipe sounds yummy.


It's not about the number on the scale - it's how great I feel about myself.

Hi! Bumping up means that we want to bring the thread to the top of the recipe forum, but have nothing new to add.

 

Re: splenda instead of sugar- the points are actually 1.59 when you use splenda instead of sugar, but they still round up to 2 (if you do that). PLease see below :D :
