Low Sodium Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Loaf

Submitted by: REDOONAGH

Introduction

Low Sodium (about 43mg a slice) and SO yummy! We make this for family game night and it is all ways a hit!

Use Ener G baking soda substitute instead of regular baking soda and you get Much lower sodium and you can't even tell that you are missing it. Ener G baking soda substitute is the best secret I have for low sodium baking. Just remember when you use the substitute you want twice as much as regular!

So if you want to use regular baking soda, make sure you ONLY use 3/4 tsp!
