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?

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.

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.

I'm anxious to try this recipe using Monkfruit as a sweetener. I was told that it doesn't have a bitter aftertaste that Splenda, Trivia or Swerve has. Just curious to know if anyone has tried this recipe using almond flour instead of regular all purpose flour. looks Uh-Mayyy-zing‼️?

I haven't tried these swaps but now I want to! I would start with a 1:1 swap and see if you need to add more almond flour. You don't want it super runny. If anyone has tried it, please let us know!

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.

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

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.
