again, here i am. weeping and wailing the fact that i am still sugar free. it really isn't that bad, and i have discovered wonderful things, like how fruit is so much sweeter than i previously thought, and that i don't need ice cream to feel happy. however there is a light at the end of the tunnel...here's my newest find:
1 cup crisco
2 cups splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons soda (dissolved)
4 cups flour
1 cup diet sprite ( i use those little half cans)
1 cup almonds (or other nut)
cream the crisco, splenda, eggs, vanilla. add the mushy bananas. dissolve the soda in a bit of water and add. add the diet sprite, and then add the flour. mix the nuts in last.
make sure you really grease up those bread pans. this is sticky stuff. for me, this made 2 bigger loafs and 2 smaller loafs. bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes, depending on the loaf size.
banana bread is my kids favorite. i usually fill a couple of loaf pans, then i will add chocolate chips to the rest of the batter for the kids. we treat it just like a yummy cookie. this recipe freezes really well, so if you have a lot of bananas, you can easily double it. i had about 12 black bananas that i pulled out of my freezer for just this occasion.
you can make this a full sugar recipe by using regular old white sugar and a cup of regular soda. it tastes the same. probably only better.
