Years ago, I worked with the SPLENDA 365 SWEET SWAPS blogger program to discover new ways I can incorporate SPLENDA into some of my recipes and reduce my sugar intake. Lately I’ve been playing around with ways to swap out sugar like my yummy banana bread recipe with Splenda and I can’t wait to share it!
The idea of sugar free banana bread has always made me a little nervous. And really, no sugar banana bread doesn’t exist because of the natural sugar in bananas.
But when I heard about SPLENDA sugar blend, I was totally intrigued because Splenda banana bread didn’t sound quite as scary to me.
The thing I like about SPLENDA recipes is that the flavor isn’t affected by the swap.
I don’t know if there is such a thing as a healthy banana bread recipe but every little bit helps right?

We use to run through bananas like crazy in this house, but the boys have backed way off snacking on this yummy fruit.
Lately, I’ve found myself with an abundance of overly ripe bananas, which we all know means banana bread!
I’m a busy mom and when I bake, I need easy and simple recipes and my Banana bread with Splenda is about as easy as they come!

Baking Banana Bread with Splenda
I tried making a sort of sugar free banana bread using all SPLENDA on one occasion and another time using the SPLENDA Sugar Blend.
I really enjoyed both sweet breads, but I think will use the blend in future recipes. It was delicious! And yes, I will share.
You can also make this recipe with regular sugar but when I’m looking to cut back, my favorite of the three options is the Splenda sugar blend.
Splenda recipes with the sugar blend aren’t quite sugar free banana bread, but it’s definitely a good start if you want to cut out sugar in small ways.
And what is super fun for me is baking with my kids. Baking banana bread is a great way to get young kids in the kitchen because there are lots of easy ways to get them involved.
My sons love peeling and mashing the bananas, cracking the eggs and even measuring and pouring the dry ingredients.
When my oldest son was in 2nd grade, he even wrote a report on how to make banana bread! I guess you could say it’s a family affair. You can prep in less than 20 minutes and then all you have to do is let it bake.
