Love banana nut bread, but it's not exactly POINTS PLUS friendly. This is a tad bit better version of my old favorite and my ORIGINAL recipe. You can use SPLENDA, instead of real sugar if you prefer and it will lower the PP value by 1, but for one PP difference, (unless you are diabetic) it's worth the extra PP to use the real stuff!

The brown sugar and vanilla gives it a bit more flavor, and the egg substitute keeps the fat content and our cholesterol numbers down.

Makes 3 loaves = 10 slices per loaf. Make one for your family and give two away!

6 WW Points Plus per slice!
