Banana Bread Nutrition Facts, and a Sugar-Free Banana Bread version

 At a glance, each slice will have around:

  •  130 calories
  • 0 grams of fat
  • 0 mg cholesterol
  • Fiber depends on the flour you use

For a sugar-free version: The following sugar-free version was lightly adapted from a wonderful friend, Jennifer.


I “met” Jennifer through comments she’s left on my blog, and she never fails to make me smile or laugh. (For example, the above photo was her submission to a “Hug-a-Carb Month” feature I wrote a few years ago. Apparently, hay is loaded with carbohydrates Smile.)

Around Eastertime, Jennifer sent me a lovely recipe for no-sugar-added banana bread. It’s not very sweet, but it makes a good breakfast bread, especially if topped with apple butter or jam or something else of that sort. I really like it topped with peanut butter! (If you want it sweeter, you can always add in a little stevia. Or maybe even try upping the amount of dates?)

No-Sugar Banana Bread

  • 4 bananas, peeled and mashed
  • heaping 1/2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut or canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 and 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (or ww pastry or spelt or white)
  • optional: extra chopped dates and/or chocolate chips to mix into the batter before baking

Soak the dates in a little water, at least four hours. Then blend the dates (drained) with the bananas, vanilla, and oil. Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix in wet (but don’t overmix). Pour batter into a lightly greased loaf tin and bake 50-60 minutes.


P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to Jennifer and all the other Canadians out there!! 🙂
