Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This recipe was originally a 'clean eating' recipe.....and would still be if I didn't use the egg substitute.  This doesn't have a HUGE banana flavor.....just a hint of banana. It's more of an 'earthy' flavor. And it's good!

Makes 10 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
3 mashed very ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey. Stir in the egg substitute and mashed bananas until well blended.

Stir banana mixture into the flour mixture just until moistened.

Transfer batter into the pan and bake 60 – 65 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in the pan 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

This was my piece. The rest of the bread was given away.
MY SPIN: There isn't really one! My stylist, Cherri, put a piece in the nuker for @20 seconds and said it was scrumptious warm.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life!
