The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe is the perfect one to make on a weekend so that you have a great healthy breakfast throughout the week. Using the Z-sweet or allulose makes this a lower calorie choice without all the sugar in most quickbreads but with a lot of added fiber from the whole grain flour and the wheat germ.

This healthy recipe can be multiplied by 2, but you'll need to use two loaf pans. Bread will keep for 72 - 96 hours in a plastic bag. Reheat gently. This will freeze fairly well if sealed tightly in a plastic bag.

  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter (softened)

  • 1/4 cup non-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tsp. light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Line a 1 1/2 quart glass Pyrex oblong loaf pan with foil (non-stick foil works best).

Place the egg and softened butter in a large mixing bowl.

Cream together until smooth.

Using the whisk mash the bananas into the mixture until smooth.

Add the Z-sweet or allulose and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.

Place the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and wheat germ in a sifter

Sift into the mixing bowl.

Gently fold the creamed mixture together with the flour mixture.
