Banana Raisin Bread {Recipe}

Photobucket

A few days ago I posted about our shopping trip {here}and purchasing Equal Sweetener at Walmart on sale for $7.97 {compared to $9.97}.  One of the recipes I had planned that day and was buying ingredients for was the Banana Raisin Bread recipe I found on the Equal Sweetener's Facebook page. We love bananas so I knew we had to make it!

A slice of Banana Raisin Bread in the morning or at snack time is lovely and not having the extra calories to worry about is always a big plus.  I prepared the Banana Raisin Bread in just 15 minutes while my little one watched from his high chair and after baking it for 50 minutes it was ready.   The banana bread was moist and delicious and we all loved it.  Recipe is below:

Banana Raisin Bread Recipe

A full flavored quick bread made with ripe bananas and raisins. Cereal adds extra crunch and beneficial nutrients. Equal reduces the calories but not the taste.

  6. That looks like a tasty recipe, tho i'm not a big fan of using artificial sweeteners. Especially for things my daughter would eat.
