Low(er) Calorie Chocolate & Caramel Banana Bread

I have my staple Banana Bread recipe which I love, but in my quest to eat a little bit healthier I tried out this recipe and was pleasantly surprised – it actually tasted just as good as my other recipe.  I’ve since incorporated this in my normal rotation of sweets…

Ingredients: Lower calorie Banana Bread

  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 cup  of both Brown and White Sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened Applesauce
  • 3 Ripe Bananas (mashed)
  • Egg Whites from 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/3 cup light Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Low-fat Caramel + Chocolate Candy


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Spray pan with cooking spray to keep low(er) calories, or grease as normal with butter/etc
  3. Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl
  4. Combine both sugars, applesauce, and butter in a bowl and beat with your hand mixer or Kitchenaid Stand Mixer.  Add bananas, egg whites, vanilla, and candy, saving some to sprinkle on top
