Gardening is something you learn by doing---and by making mistakes....
Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Low Sugar Banana Bread

Since most of my co-workers watching their figures, I thought I'd make a low sugar banana bread.  I used Splenda Brown Sugar in place of regular sugar.  Although Splenda Brown Sugar isn't totally sugar free, it does have half the sugar.  I took it to work for a taste test and it passed with flying colors!

Low Sugar Banana Bread
1/2 cup Splenda Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup Butter, softened (may replace with 1/4 cup butter & 1/4 cup applesauce )
2 eggs (may use 1/2 cup egg substitute)
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Bananas, mashed (about a cup)
1/2 cup Sour Cream (may use light)
1/2 cup Walnuts or Pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F, spray loaf pan with PAM

Cream Splenda Brown Sugar and butter.  Add eggs and mix well.
Add Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, Cinnamon, mix well.
Add Bananas, Sour Cream and walnuts.  Stir until well combined.
Bake in loaf pan at 350°F for 50-60 minutes, until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes then remove from loaf pan, cool on wire wrack.

The Mix
