    Banana Buster Bread

    Source of Recipe

    JoAnna M. Lund

    Recipe Introduction

    Ask any man about his favorite tea bread, dense and fruity and oh-so-good, and he's more than likely to say "banana bread". But when he tastes this decadent creation, he'll surely have a new "best-loved"--it's so full of goodies it ought to be illegal, but it's not. Enjoy!
    Serves 8

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar free banana cream pudding mix
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped dry roasted peanuts
    • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) mini-chocolate chips
    • 2/3 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe bananas
    • 1 egg or equivalent in egg substitute
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine flour, dry pudding mix, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir in peanuts and chocolate chips. In a medium bowl, combine mashed bananas, egg, applesauce, apple juice, and vanilla extract. Add banana mixture to flour mixture. Mix just until combined. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until top tests done. Set pan on a wire rack to cool. Remove from pan and continue cooling on rack. Cut into 8 thick or 16 thin slices.
