To all my Scott County Friends

I wanted to let all you guys know about the great sale on banana's at Helenwood Foods right now. They have them up front on a cart, and they are .50 for a big bunch. They are already ripe, so you will have to bake bread with them, or let the kiddos and hubby eat them up fast, but for .50 cents a bunch, I will be baking some homemade banana nut bread. Here is a recipe I use for some very yummy bread.

Ingredients needed

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/4 cups mashed bananas
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray one 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray coating.
In a large bowl, blend together the eggs, buttermilk, applesauce, and bananas. Sift together the SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, flour, baking soda, and salt; mix into banana mixture. Stir in pecans. Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

This is my "sugar free" recipe I use off the splenda website , if your trying to watch you weight, or have someone in your family who is a diabetic, this site is a life saver. We are a family who loves sweets, and I bake alot of stuff from scratch, but I make everything I bake with splenda. Hope you enjoy this, I sure do!!
