Description

A low fat, low sugar version of banana bread with all the flavor and a yummy cream cheese swirl in the center!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • 1-¾ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Artificial Sweetener (I Used Splenda)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 4 Tablespoons Light Butter
  • 2 whole Overripe Bananas
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ½ cups Low-fat Buttermilk
  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE SWIRL:
  • 4 ounces, weight Low Fat Cream Cheese, At Room Temperature
  • ¼ cups Artificial Sweetener (I Used Splenda)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons Low Fat Buttermilk (or Milk)

Preparation

In a bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, artificial sweetener, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Blend in the butter using a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture is a little crumbly.

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and add the vanilla, egg and buttermilk. Add the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir to combine.

In a separate bowl, make the swirl by mixing together the cream cheese, sweetener, vanilla and buttermilk (or milk) until completely smooth.

Pour half the banana batter in a buttered and floured loaf pan. Add the cream cheese mixture and top with the remaining banana batter. Using a butter knife, gently swirl the batter a couple of times but don’t over mix.

Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 50 minutes.
