This is Amazing Banana Bread!!

I was going to get a picture of this scrumptious bread but it was gone so fast I didn't even get a chance!
I adapted this recipe from the "Biggest Loser Just Dessert Cookbook".

3/4 cup flour (white or wheat)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 very ripe mashed banana
1/4 cup + 2 TB agave nectar
2 TB fruit-juice sweetened vanilla yogurt (cascade from sprouts)
1 lg egg white
2 TB melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 and prepare pans with non-stick spray. Sift together first 4 dry ingredients. In separate bowl whisk ttogether remaining wet ingredients until well combined but do not over mix. Stir in dry ingredients until no flour is visible and ingredients are just combined. Divide batter in 4 mini loaf pans or about 8 muffins tins. Bake 19-22 mins until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack and refrigerate if they are not all gone right away!


  1. I am taking a slow approach...I just had my baby and want to start this for a few months and see how I do. Would you do a post with kitchen basics (sugar alternatives) for the recipes you use? I am a little overwhelmed with having to buy such foreign things for each recipe, but know if I had some on hand I would be more likely to bake with them!


  2. just made these with some chocolate fudge sauce over good!
    Fudge sauce:
    agave + cocoa powder
    mix with a whisk whatever ratio you like!

  3. I'm with Courtney. I would love to jump on board but I am so lost with everything! Help! :)

  4. Yum yum yum! I love banana bread and can't wait to try this recipe.
