 Sugar Free Banana Bread Recipe

I am always looking for great tasting recipes that don’t use sugar, as well as a recipe my little one can help with. I am in love with the all natural sweetener Xylitol, not only is it a great one for one substitution for sugar but it always has great dental benefits as well. The great thing about making banana bread is that it is something everyone in the family can participate in–it is just pouring ingredients mixing, and my personal favorite part, mashing the bananas! These are all things that can be fun for your little ones to do and makes it easy for them to participate. Even my little one year old loved that she got to help me mix and mash in this recipe. So here it is–I adapted a few different banana bread recipes to get to my liking, and remember any time you want to use xylitol as a substitute for sugar it is one for one, so you don’t even have to mess with different measurements. This makes it a very simple and quick substitution.
