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!!!

Cranana Loaf


What's a Cranana? A word I made up, of course! This is a delicious cranberry and banana loaf. I made this a while ago, but can't get it to post with the pictures. So, here is the recipe and I'll add the pictures later! But make it now.....don't wait for the pictures! 

CRANANA LOAF
Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 3 PointsPlus™


1/4 cup (4 TBSP) light butter, melted
1 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
3 mashed, ripe bananas
1 cup chopped cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Lightly spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine melted butter, Splenda granulated and half of the egg substitute; beat until smooth. Beat in the remaining egg substitute.

Stir in the bananas and cranberries.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add this to the banana mixture, stirring only until completely moistened.

Scrape mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let stand in the loaf pan for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan to a cooling rack.

MY SPIN: Of course, if you know me, you know I love cinnamon so my 1/2 tsp was a heaping 1/2 tsp.

Enjoy!

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. ***
