Low Sugar A-Z Bread
My kids LOVE banana bread and I always seem to have extra brown bananas lying around. My favorite recipe had 2 cups of sugar and virtually no fiber, but after tinkering around I finally came up with a healthier version. It is seriously so yummy my kids go nuts when I make it. With stevia “sugar” available now, I am happy to say this recipe reduces the sugar by 12 grams per serving. Using whole-wheat pastry flour and adding additional fiber adds 2 grams of fiber per serving. Tip: put your brown bananas, skins and all, in the freezer until you are ready to make bread. They thaw in 30 min!
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup More Fiber Baking Blend
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking powder
1/2 – 1 cup Stevia sugar (depending on sweetness of fruit)
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups A-Z (i.e. grated apple, apples sauce, grated zucchini, banana, pumpkin, or combination. I personally like half banana and half apple)
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
* Approximately 6 grams sugar, 2 grams protein, 2 grams fiber, 10 grams fat per serving
** Can’t find the More Fiber? Increase the whole wheat flour by 3/4 cup and the Stevia sugar by 3/4 cup
Mix or sift dry ingredients (Flour, Fiber, Salt, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Cinnamon)
Beat eggs. Add sugar and oil and mix thoroughly.
Add A-Z and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients until combined. Pour into greased pan and bake in 325º oven for approximately 1 hour. Enjoy!
