Banana Bread with Agave

I have tweaked a banana bread recipe for my husbands friend at work who is diabetic. He enjoys the recipe and it does not cause his blood sugar to spike plus it is very moist!!!

Makes 1 loaf

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 cup Date sugar
  • 1/2 cup Organic Blue Agave Sweetener
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Baby food Bananas or mashed.( I find that baby food mixes so well)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, Agave Sweetner and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to incorporate.

In a separate medium size bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas, Plain yogurt, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour into prepared pan.

Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes.

Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
