Low Sugar Pecan Banana Bread

  I made banana bread today, and made just four changes to the recipe I used. I added more cinnamon, added pecans, cut the amount of banana (ha, I did this without trying to :P), and cut the sugar by one-fourth cup. So it's really not so low-sugar. It is healthier though. ;)

    Anyhow, it tastes very good, and eating it with butter may possibly make it taste like butter pecan banana bread. :) 


2 cups white flour *

1 1\2 tsp baking powder

1\2 tsp baking soda

1\4 tsp salt

1\2 tsp cinnamon

1\8 tsp nutmeg

2 eggs 

1 cup mashed banana 

3\4 cup sugar

1\2 cup melted butter

1\3 cup crushed pecans

  Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients (plus pecans) in another bowl. Mix both together just until combined. Pour into greased loaf pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 55 minutes. **

* Use some whole wheat flour to make this more healthy. :)

** The original recipe says to bake for 55-60 minutes, but mine was done at 55. 

  You should definitely try this if you love banana bread (like me!). :) I didn't even miss the cut sugar- or banana! ;)
