Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Banana Nut Bread (E-IF)


Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Banana Nut Bread (E-IF)

I used to love banana bread in the past, and it was a great way to use over-ripe bananas.  This recipe is a great to get that flavor back.  You can choose for yourself if you want to include one half of a banana to the recipe to add a bit more flavor.  Adding the half banana would add roughly 1.5g of carbs per piece.

    Splenda measures cup for cup like sugar, right? Then if I use Truvia, would I still use a cup measurement, or the Truvia measurement that is the equivalent to one cup of sugar? (Truvia does not measure cup for cup like sugar)

    (I hope this makes sense to you…)

      Oh it makes absolute sense to me, and I ironically was just talking about this today on the LCAF Facebook page. I am going to cut and paste that post here:
      “When I use a sweetener in one of my recipes, I try to list the amount of sweetness (comparable to sugar) to add into the mix since other products might be sweeter or require less product to make.

      Here’s the information I have found on Truvia:
      1 cup of sugar = 1/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tbsp., or 24 packets, of Truvia
      1/4 cup of sugar = 1 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. of Truvia, or six packets
      1/3 cup of sugar = 2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp., or eight packets
      1 tbsp. of sugar = 1 1/4 tsp. of Truvia, or 1 1/2 packets
      1 tsp. of sugar = 3/8 of a tablespoon of Truvia, or half of a packet.

      All the recipes I post, and that appeared in my section of the book are gauged to a level of comparable sweetness to sugar, i.e.
      1 cup of Granulated Splenda = 24 drops of liquid Splenda = 1 cup of Sugar = 1/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tbsp., or 24 packets, of Truvia

      That way you can pick any sweetener you wish as long as you know its conversion sweetness to sugar.” Does this help?
