Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Not a lot fat version. I'm allowed 15 to 20mg of fat a day & this is a 33% to 20% of my daily total. Even adding applesauce, etc won't help here. Submitted by:

I love banana bread. As I am diabetic, I will substitute Splenda for the sugar and skim milk for buttermilk. I will also try using sugar-free apple sauce instead of the fat. Thanks for the recipe. Submitted by:

I haven't made it but reading the comments was fun. If you read the recipe, it does say to divide into 2 pans so that is 12 servings per pan. And I don't know what the deal is but I have noticed that Splenda brown sugar has the the same or more calories as regular brown sugar when I compared labels Submitted by:

standard serving size for a loaf pan is 12 servings. i agree with the other posts that 24 servings from one loaf is ridiculous. that puts your calorie count closer to 240 calories per serving.

i would suggest reducing the sugar to 1 cup (plenty sweet) and ommitting the buttermilk altogether.

I don't consider 4.3 grams LO FAT! Reading through comments here, I would use egg substitute, brown sugar splenda with regular splenda, NO butter, just the bananas and some applesauce. SKIM milk. I have not calculated it, but with 1/2 the nuts, I know it would be far more reasonable for dieting! Submitted by:

You say this is low fat? I don't think so. My recipe has 1/4 c fat (margarine), yogurt (to make up for the fat) and 1 egg, 1 egg white! Submitted by:

Sounds Great but I would say be careful of the serving size. Very easy to eat two or three times as much and then really load up on the calories. Submitted by:

How about whole wheat flour, splenda and applesauce instead of the white flour, sugar and butter! Submitted by:

any banana bread is yummy-a little tip on cutting out the fat-replace the butter with an equal amount of applesauce and then take out that same amount of liquid.If the recipe does not call for any liquid,you can remove some of the egg(s)This works in most recipes except for cookies Submitted by:

I haven't made this, but at the ingredients that the nutritional info was based on differ from the recipe you follow to make this bread. I wouldn't make this, as just substituting applesauce for butter or shortening & using oat flour in a standard recipe makes a great banana bread. Submitted by:

This looks like standard banana bread recipe. I use brown sugar instead of white sugar. Whole wheat flour instead of white flour, skim milk instead of buttermilk and I add applesauce to moisten. The loaf doesn't last too long in my house! Submitted by:

This looks like a standard banana bread recipe. I'm sure it's delicious but if you want a low fat version, I recommend substituting apple sauce or yogurt for part or all of the butter. If you use apple sauce, decrease the sugar a bit. Submitted by:

This is the same recipe I use all the time, and it's definitely not low fat. I've always modified it and added some vanilla (not banana flavoring), and divided the sugar using 1/2 the amount granulated, and 1/2 brown sugar. Super yummy! Not lowfat. Submitted by:

This IS a good recipe. I put extra banana and it was very moist and yummy. However, it's definitely not lowfat. And it's impossible to get 24 servings out of this recipe, so a decent serving size it actually about 2 or 2.5 of the recommended serving sizes, which is close to 300 cals or more. Submitted by:

This is a great recipe. It doesn't taste low fat. I used half brown sugar and half white sugar but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't add nuts because I wanted to keep the calories on the lower side. Submitted by:
