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.

    1. I’m sorry that this didn’t turn out for you. When you measured out the flour, did you scoop it out or did you spoon and level the flour into the measuring cup?

  1. i Aden your banana bread today.it cooked for 50 mins. But when it cooled it shrunk. It taste Ok but does not look like you’re picture. Does it need baking soda ?

    1. I’m sorry that it didn’t turn out. The recipe does call for and does list baking soda in the recipe card. When you measured the flour, did you do the scoop method or did you do the spoon and level method?

    1. That shouldn’t have been a problem. Did you remember the baking soda? It could be that it was over beaten. It should only be mixed until all of the ingredients are combined.

  2. Mine looks absolutely nothing like the picture. I used the spoon and level method for the flour. Mine came out gummy in the middle, it shrank, and it is a very dark brown. Not sure what happened! It doesn’t taste bad, but I wouldn’t make it again.

  3. I’ve made this bread twice. It was a big hit here. I make regular banana bread all the time but since we are trying to lose weight I thought I would try it.
    I added some oatmeal for moisture about [3\4 of a cup) and cinnamon. It was delicious each time. One loaf baking right now. Thank you.
    I used my kitchen aid to mix it.

    Love your recipe.

  4. I made this today and used the Swerve confectionery sugar and it was wonderful! I will make it again and add vanilla and cinnamon. But it is awesome as is.

  5. Mine came out great but good thing I checked it cooking because it only took 30 minutes.I would have burnt it at 55 minutes if I left my timer go. The bottom was a tad bit chewy too. Maybe I didn’t mix it good enough? But all in all it was good. I would make it again.

  6. My four time making this. Added oatmeal and cinnamon for more moisture……we love it. Great recipe for dieters who love something sweet.

  7. So I read the reviews and was a little nervous bc people were saying it didn’t rise. I was going to use monk fruit sweetener, which is zero calorie. I noticed on the bag that it said to use half sugar and half mf sweetener when baking so it would rise. I decided not to use it bc I wanted to make sure it was low in points, but maybe that’s why some of your breads aren’t rising. I used 6 tbsp of stevia in the recipe and it was absolutely amazing. Me and my mom loved it! Thank you!
