Let's Cook! Banana Bread - Low fat, Low Calorie!

 Hello Lovelies!

Today I've got a recipe for low fat healthy version of Banana bread! It comes in at around 140 calories a piece (Or less if you use smaller cases!) It's very simple to make and takes about 30-40 minutes to bake in the oven!


  • 200g Whole wheat flour
  • 300g Over ripe bananas
  • 119g eggs (roughly two medium eggs)
  • 1 TSP Stevia or other sweetener (Optional)
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • 1/2 TSP Nutmeg (Optional)
  • 1 TSP Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Pinch of salt


  • Large bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Fork
  • 8 cake cases or loaf tin
  • Oven - preheated to 200c or 190c if you are using a fan oven

Add your bananas to the bowl and mash them with the back of a fork until you have a lumpy goop!

Crack the eggs into the bowl and beat in to the banana mix. Add in the sweetener if you are using it and mix well.

Next add in the flour and stir in till you have a wet cakey mixture. It shouldn't be overly runny, if it is add a little more flour in.

Add in your spices, salt and bicarb and mix through.

Divide the batter evenly between your cake cases (If you're using hard cases like mine I suggest using a baking sheet underneath or if you are using paper cases using a cake pan)

Pop them into the oven for 30-40 minutes - I'd check on them around 30, if they look dark brown and are stiff to the touch they are done. You can try using the cocktail stick method but as there is banana in these you run the risk of mistaking banana for raw cake batter!

And there you go! All done! You now have some pretty tasty snacks for jsut 140 calories a pop! I hope you enjoy this recipe! Let me know your thoughts in the comment, or any suggestions you'd like to see me make!

Ta-ta for now!
