Truvia Banana Bread is my favorite recipe using Truvia Brown Sugar blend. I bought it a while back with good intentions, but haven't used it much. Thinking I'd give it another try and take care of some over-ripe bananas, I made this very easy banana bread. It calls for about 3 ½ bananas and is baked in an 8 ½ by 4 ½ inch loaf pan.
Truvia Banana Bread Flavor
It's very good! Truvia does leave kind of an aftertaste, but in this case it's not necessarily unpleasant. Knowing it's lower in sugar makes it worth it. As for the texture, it's soft, very moist and packed with banana. It has so much banana that you can see the dense banana collecting at the bottom of the loaf. At first I didn't like this, but the banana flavor is so good I don't really mind. I like this almost as much as my usual favorite banana bread, which is probably the Starbuck's Banana Bread Copycat.
Update: I can't use artificial sweeteners anymore, but if you have some Truvia this is a really good recipe. I'm trying to recreate it with sugar, but it's still not the same as it was with the special sweetener. Weird!
