If you love banana bread but thought you couldn’t have it while trying to lose weight, you have to try this Weight Watchers Banana Bread. It is so moist and delicious, no one would think it was lower in fat and calories.
Weight Watchers Banana Bread
I love me some banana bread. It is one of my go to things to make. We eat it for breakfast and snacks and even the kids love it. Sometimes we add chocolate chips or nuts. We have even made it with peanut butter chips. But none of those make the banana bread Weight Watchers approved. So I played with the recipe and came up with a 1 point Weight Watchers Banana Bread recipe that tastes amazing.
How to Store Banana Bread
Banana Bread can be stored at room temperature. The key to making banana bread last is to make sure it is covered well. This can be with plastic wrap, a freezer bag or in an airtight container. Anything that protects the bread from being exposed to the air.
Banana bread can also be stored in the refrigerator. It will last a few days longer in the the refrigerator but I prefer it at room temperature.
Can Banana Bread Be Frozen
YES! I love to freeze banana bread. When we make WW banana bread, I always make a double batch and freeze one of the loaves. This lets me have banana bread whenever I want it.
Before I freeze the bread, I like to cut it into slices. Then I wrap each slice with plastic wrap and then I place it in a freezer bag. This keeps everything from getting freezer burn and keeps the slices all together in one place in the freezer.
How Long Does WW Banana Bread Last
When banana bread is stored at room temperature and covered, it will last for about 4-5 days. If it is stored in the refrigerator, it will last for about 10 days. It can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Can These Be Made into Banana Muffins
If you want to make these into banana bread muffins, you can easily make the change. Be sure to spray each muffin tin well with non stick cooking spray or use a cupcake liner. Then, bake the muffins for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
What is the Best Sugar Substitute for This Weight Watchers Banana Bread
I am using Splenda. I like that it is a one to one sugar substitute. That means that if a recipe calls for sugar, I can use Splenda and not have to adjust the amount I am putting in. With some of the other sugar substitutes you have to adjust it because it is stronger than sugar. Stevia is a good example of this.
