Chocolate Banana Bread

Have you ever heard of Xylitol?  Me neither, until the friendly people over at Emerald Forest asked me if I would be willing to try it out in a recipe.  I’m not a fan of artificial sweetners, but xylitol is all natural – they make theirs with North American Birch.  To me, it tasted just like sugar, but it has 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbs.  What a great sugar substitute for people who can’t have sugar or who are looking to cut back on calories!

I made a chocolate banana bread with mine, and it turned out delicious!  Sorry I don’t have a picture : (.  It got eaten too quickly!

Chocolate Banana Bread
3 mashed bananas
3/4 cup xylitol
2 T ground flax combined with 6 T water (or 2 eggs)
½ cup butter, melted
1 ¾ cups flour
¼ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 325.  Lightly butter the bottom and sides of a loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl whisk all ingredients together.  
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.  
Bake for about an hour, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

**I received xylitol for free in order to try it in a recipe.  I was under no obligation to post about it, and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
