***Banana Bread***
3 bananas
1/2 cup plain applesauce
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1 package sugar-free instant pudding mix
1 3/4 cup milk
1 package cream cheese
1 container lite frozen whipped topping, thawed


For Banana Bread: Mix well and bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes. Surprisingly, using applesauce rather then sugar doesn't seem to change the taste at all.

For Icing: Mix the pudding and milk until it stiffens. Beat the cream cheese until smooth and mix into pudding. Finally fold in the whipped topping.

For being sugar free I think this is great. I mean, it's not REAL banana bread so it's not as good but it's more diet friendly. I don't know what the offense is to the frosting. I liked it with the frosting. I've had banana bread with a cream cheese frosting before. This frosting made a lot though, way more than it needed if you are just frosting the top of it. I wondered if it's meant to be more of a spread like when you slice it. That's how I ended up using it once it was obvious there was just way too much to simply be frosting the bread.

Wasn't that impressed unfortunately, I used 1 cup spelt flour, half cup white flour to increase the nutrition. It was very light and moist but not sweet enough, you need very sweet bananas and/or more applesauce. Walnuts definitely would have made it better. A good basic recipe to tweak to your own taste. Followed to the recipe above, mine when finished definitely needed each slice to be spread with butter to make it worthwhile to serve. Not really ideal from a health perspective. But you could have a go with this and make it into something great if you loved banana bread and were brave enough to sub some of the butter with applesauce without losing the moistness that makes this recipe special.

Sure would like to have the nutrition facts without the frosting (never heard of frosting on banana bread!) given the only review mentions they chose to forego the icing which leads me to believe they wanted to eliminate unnecessary fat and calories, as I would. Not to mention, why would one want to take something good (banana bread), make it better (replace the sugar with applesauce) , and then add, ...icing?!

Best ever! So moist. I added chopped walnuts and skipped the icing altogether. It will be a family favorite.
