A perfect breakfast treat - delicious gluten-free Mini Banana Raisin Loaf
This is yummy recipe that was previously published on Slimming Eats has been improved and updated
So tonight I fancied cake and the overripe banana's sitting in my fruit bowl were just screaming banana cake to me. They were literally taunting me all day long, honest.
I am not a fan of eating over ripe bananas raw, I actually prefer them a little green on the outside still, and so not wanting to waste anything, it really just had to be a mini banana raisin loaf.
I must admit this was a bit of a recipe development and test, so it could of ended disastrously and they may of just been fit for the bin.
I hovered near the oven with the oven light on the whole time watching them patiently as they cooked and started to rise and was feeling rather hungry from the delicious aroma of banana bread that was filling my kitchen.
I had saved the remainder of my points for the day, just so I could test these bad boys out when they came out of the oven. So I really wanted these to work.
and oh boy did they work, perfect mini banana raisin loaves, the slices of banana almost caramelized from the little bit of sukrin gold I added to the top and the super moist and proper cake on the inside was just divine.
One thing I hate is to waste calories on a cake that resembles a sweet omelette. If I am going to use my calories, it has to be on something good and so if I want cake, it has to taste like cake and these really were amazing!!!
These could also be varied by replacing the raisins with chocolate chips and the cinnamon with vanilla extract.
I use a mini silicone loaf pans which are 5.5 inches by 3inches, but if you don't have mini loaf tray in this size, feel free to use just muffin cases and instead of slicing the banana lengthways, you can add little rounds to the top, would be great for Slimming group tasters
For the sugar, I used Sukrin1 and then for the top Sukrin Gold which is a great natural tasting sweetener that is nice and golden just like you expect brown sugar to be. I have tried many different types of sweetener in the past trying to find one that is natural and tastes natural and I think this is it. I usually just use some n honey or maple syrup, but it’s nice to know I can now use this and reduce the points even further. As always, you can use any sweetener of your choosing.
