A low fat, low sugar version of banana bread with all the flavor and a yummy cream cheese swirl in the center!
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.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
