- 1 1/2 c
- mashed banana
- 1 Tbsp
- lemon juice
- 1 c
- high fiber cereal, like all-bran
- 2/3 c
- boiling water
- 1/2 c
- berry-flavored applesauce
- 1 c
- splenda-sugar blend
- 1 c
- frozen raspberries
- beaten eggs
- 3 c
- carbquick baking mix, or more as needed
- 1 1/2 tsp
- baking powder
1Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9x5-inch bread pan, and one mini-loaf pan.
2In a large bowl, pour boiling water over the fiber cereal. Let cool 10 minutes.
3Add the banana, lemon juice, applesauce, splenda-sugar, and frozen raspberries to the fiber cereal. Mix well. Check to be sure the mixture is no longer hot, then beat in the beaten eggs.
4Stir the baking powder into the CarbQuick baking mix, then fold the baking mix into the moist ingredients. Mix until combined, but do not over-mix. If batter appears too thin, add more CarbQuick. You want it the consistency of muffin batter - thicker than cake batter.
5Fill the bread pans about 2/3 full. I used a mini-loaf pan because it made slightly more batter than was good for my large bread pan.
6Bake until bread tests done in center with a toothpick. The mini-loaf took about 45-50 minutes, and the large loaf took 65 minutes.
7Cool in pans 5 minutes, then turn out onto rack to finish cooling. Wrap in foil and keep refrigerated.
