Warm Banana Bread That Any Dieter Will Go Ape Over

Written by Diet Bites

Our delicious, lower calorie banana bread recipe for dieters. Easy to prepare and oh-so-tasty!


Nothing can compare to the smell of warm banana bread, piping hot from the oven on a chilly day. Our low calorie, low fat recipe is ultra easy, fool-proof (how else would we have created it?) and yes - deliciously delightful for dieters!

An added benefit to this low calorie banana bread creation is that the dieter enjoys a section of the Food Pyramid - the healthy banana from the Fruit Group.

The following recipe makes two small loaves that we baked in tiny bread pans.  Entire recipe contains about 500 calories.  If you're adding up how much you can enjoy - here is some healthy food for thought. One-half of a loaf amounts to a skinny 125 calories.  Wow!  Can I please pile on a couple of spoons of lite whipped topping with that?

Now for the tasty, low fat, low calorie recipe for homemade banana bread.  Preheat oven to 350 and spray two mini-baking pans with non-stick cooking spray.  Place the following ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and gently mix by hand until smooth.

The Recipe Ingredients for Diet Banana Bread

1 mashed banana (please remove peeling before adding to the bowl)

1 Tablespoon of Melted Butter or Margarine (we used diet but regular will do for about 60 calories)

1 teaspoon of Rum Extract Diet Banana Bread Recipe

1 cup of Splenda

Dash of Salt

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 large egg

2 Tablespoons of Skim Milk

Add the following dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients:

3/4 cup of All Purpose Flour

Cook about 20 minutes - or until golden brown.

Preparation Notes for Diet Banana Bread

For those who do not like using sugar substitute, double the bananas and use 1/2 cup of real sugar. Another suggestion for those limiting sugar substitute is to use half real sugar and half sugar substitute.

Using the base of this recipe, other delicious warm breads can be created such as peach bread and strawberry bread.  What about warm lemon bread with a sexy glaze and a dash of lemon zest on top?

Nuts may also be added to the recipe but be sure to tally up those extra calories.  

Rum extract can be substituted with vanilla extract OR almond extract.
