Sugar Free and Fat Free Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!

This is my third time making this recipe because it is that delicious and you truly can't believe how healthy it is for you!  In fact, we had family in town to meet baby Lawson and in the matter of 24 hours the whole loaf was diminished.  

It's one of those things where you keep cutting yourself a slice throughout the day, saying to yourself, okay this slice is really going to be the last one, lol!  I blame it on the nursing, ha!  I am literally hungry all the time, I think even mores than when I was pregnant, which makes since considering I am now feeding a 12 pounder :)  

Little Lawson is getting bigger by the day.  We just got his 3 month photos taken this past weekend and I can't wait to share them soon.  Until then, make this delicious guilt-free banana bread, you won't regret it!

  • 3 mashed overripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup no sugar added applesauce
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs whites
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top

In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the overripe bananas until blended.  Then add the egg whites, vanilla, applesauce and honey with the mixer on low speed.  Next, add the flour, baking soda and salt all with the mixer on low speed until incorporated.  Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup on top.  Pour in a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes.

And here's Lawson at 3 months...
