Easy Banana Bread recipe with SPLENDA

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?

Use this quick and easy banana bread recipe with Splenda or Splenda Sugar Blend to cut on added sugar. Don't want to use Splenda? No problem. Just use sugar in it's place. Or for added sugar free banana bread, use only SPLENDA.

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!

The key is making sure you have the Splenda sugar blend. This is still a dessert and it’s not sugar free, but it is delicious! I love this recipe and so does my whole family.

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.

Easy Banana Bread Recipe with SPLENDA

This banana bread with Splenda recipe couldn’t be easier. You could spice it up any way you like by adding nuts, raisins or even chocolate chips.

Basically, if you have a few large bananas, some all-purpose flour, and some melted butter, you’re on your way. I hope you love this low sugar banana bread as much as we do!

That actually looks delicious and I need one dish recipes like this so badly, with my energy levels. Thank you!!

Wanda April 28, 2017 - 7:41 pm

I just made this recipe into 12 small muffin cups ( not the mini). Delicious. How I changed it for me is I used 1 large banana, 1/4 cups of walnuts, 1/3 cup of spray butter (I can’t believe It’s not butter) No Calories… and cooked them for 13 minutes. YUM… My Husband will even love these. I will be freezing these individually so they won’t get moldy like my last ones did.

Andrea Updyke May 1, 2017 - 12:21 pm

Thanks for sharing! Freezing muffins is a great idea!

Crystal March 3, 2018 - 2:58 pm

I just made this and the taste was good (no after taste with the Splenda) however, it was dark, and kind of flat. I baked it in a glass pan for exactly one hour…does it turn out better in a non stick pan?

Andrea Updyke March 7, 2018 - 9:44 am

That’s a great question! I also use glass pans. Depending on your oven you may want to play with the time to make sure it doesn’t overcook. With mine, the edges do get a little dark by the time the center is done. If you try non-stick, I’d love to know how it turns out!

Amy March 31, 2018 - 10:37 am

Vanilla? as in extract or pods? Baking target for a diabetic family member so will it be needed at all?

Andrea Updyke May 9, 2018 - 10:43 am

I used extract but I don’t see why you couldn’t swap it with other options.

Bill May 12, 2018 - 10:46 pm

I have made this a few times now and me and my wife enjoy it every time. This last time I tried it using muffin tins and 1/2 cup less flour baked for 30 min and they came out great. Though I could probably reduce the cooking time a bit lol.

Andrea Updyke May 29, 2018 - 5:42 pm

Great tip! Thanks.

Julie May 28, 2018 - 2:13 pm

This was an amazing recipe. I did however use 4 1/2 bananas and 2 tsp vanilla but other than that this was so amazing kids, husbands, in laws all loved it

Andrea Updyke May 29, 2018 - 5:43 pm

I’m so glad to hear you all loved it! Thank you for sharing your tips!

Marilyn Richardson September 1, 2018 - 10:12 pm

I just made this recipe with a few tweaks. I used Red Mill Stone Ground wheat flour, added in 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts and 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. It turned out perfect and so moist! I will be making this one again. Thanks so much.

Andrea Updyke September 18, 2018 - 1:14 pm

So glad you enjoyed it!

Andrea Updyke September 18, 2018 - 1:15 pm

Hmmm I’m not sure. I know ovens can vary. Did you use the Splenda/Sugar blend? Using only Splenda may merit a little tweaking.

Susan Carraretto September 22, 2018 - 10:01 pm

This looks so delicious!!!

Andrea Updyke September 25, 2018 - 11:08 am

We all love it! Never lasts long around here 🙂

Linda Gail Linder November 14, 2018 - 11:48 am

I baked two loaves of banana bread because like you said the bananas were turning brown. I ate three pieces. Thank God I gave the rest to my two neighbor lady friends. Thanks, I believe I might go bake again. I did not have Splenda so I used another sweeter but it was delicious too.

Andrea Updyke November 15, 2018 - 11:01 am

So glad to hear you liked it!

Deborah cate November 20, 2018 - 9:57 am

Do you use milk in banana bread

Andrea Updyke December 5, 2018 - 4:56 pm

I don’t use it in my recipe. There may be some that do but this doesn’t need it!

Mary January 21, 2019 - 2:35 pm

Do you have breakdown of carbs, carbohydrates, etc?

Andrea Updyke January 23, 2019 - 12:22 pm

Hi Mary, I’ve just added this info above. Please note, it’s based on 6 servings and the first ingredient option in the recipe. For instance, when I say to use butter or margarine, I’m calculating for butter. Thanks for reading!

Kim July 22, 2019 - 6:16 pm

The title says “with Splenda” but the recipe states “Splenda Sugar Blend”. Which did you use? It matters for me because I’m making it for someone that is diabetic.

Andrea Updyke July 22, 2019 - 6:53 pm

I have made it both ways! You can still use a 1:1 ratio with regular Splenda when swapping this amount.
