YUMMY!!! Whole Grain Banana Bread

Yum!! We made the BEST Whole Grain Banana Bread! It was so good!! We had some bananas that were past their prime and I couldn't just throw them away so we decided to make banana bread with them. I've never found a recipe that I really liked because most recipes use 2 cups of sugar and NO ONE needs that much sugar!
Cameron had a great time cutting up the bananas to put in.
He even helped mix it.
Doesn't it look yummy!!??!!
Next time, I might add nuts! I'm not really crazy about using splenda but I did.
Here's the recipe:
Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread
3/4 cup SPLENDA® Sugar Blend
3/4 cup flax seed meal
5 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
2 teaspoons egg whites
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar blend, flax meal, bananas, milk, sour cream and egg whites until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the banana mixture until moistened. Spoon into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean.
