  • 3 ripe bananas, medium-large
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Splenda Brown sugar blend
  • 3 Tbsp. Stevia or sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup Gold Medal self rising flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Land o’ lakes made with canola oil light butter melted or you can substitute 3 Tbsp of unsweetened applesauce in place of the light butter.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray loaf pan (9×5 or 8×4) with non stick cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl add bananas and use a fork to mash well.

3. Add egg, vanilla, brown sugar and stevia or sugar substitute . Stir well.

4. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda & powder.

5. Add dry ingredients into the wet slowly as you stir.

Before the two are incorporated add in melted butter. Stir just until barely combined.

💥DO NOT OVER MIX. The number one tip is to not over mix.

  1. OMG this is so delish!! Just got home from work and made this because it was haunting me all day at work. Even the husband loved it – couldn’t tell it was low calories – so light and airy. Thank you so much – you have such wonderful recipes.

    1. Yay! Oh that it so wonderful to hear. Thanks for the sweet support and review. I appreciate it so much. It’s one of our favorites at our house too. (Even my husband and kids not following ww. ☺️)


  2. Lindsay I just tried this it is wonderful. I love all your posts and I am so inspired by your journey. Is it ok for me to share this recipe with my WW group? It is a small group but , we really support and encourage each other. I will be sure and tell them it is your recipe and they should check out your FB page. THanks Mary Frantz

  3. This recipe is very low sugar (which is fantastic) but does the final product taste like it’s lacking sweetness? I’m definitely intrigued and it seems like everyone loves it, but I’m a girl who loves her sweets!

    1. Hey 👋 yes! I absolutely love the fact that it tastes delicious but is low in sugar. It’s my kids favorite too and they have no idea it’s a healthier version. I definitely recommend tryin it and see what you think! The brown sugar blend (substitute) along with the sugar substitute really does make it sweet enough


  4. I follow you on IG, but didn’t realize how great your blog is! I’m off to bake these little guys right now:)


  5. Is the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend sweeter than regular brown sugar? The Splenda is 7 points for 2 tablespoons and regular brown sugar is just 4 points. I’m thinking it must make the bread sweeter. I’m looking forward to having some extra ripe bananas soon so I can make this! We seem to eat up the fresh bananas before they get nicely ripe! 🙂


    1. Hi,

      The Splenda Brown Sugar is concentrated and therefore 2 tbsp of it is equivalent to 1/4 cup regular brown sugar.

      Hope that makes sense. If you use regular brown sugar you’ll want to use 1/4 cup.



  6. Do you think I could make these using Kodiak Powercake mix? I also don’t use artificial sweeteners of any type, so I was thinking of adding some vanilla protein powder as well for a bit of sweetness (like your blueberry muffin recipe). Your thoughts?


    1. I bet you could. Adding extract can help sweeten the loaf without having to use the artificial sweeteners.

      Also..Yes, you can use my blueberry muffin recipe and make it into a loaf and add bananas to it (omit the blueberries if desired). I’ve done that before and it’s awesome.

      Thank YOU
