I lost 150lbs. about 4 years ago eating a no refined sugar or white flour lifestyle. The weight fell off in 12 months! I taught classes and recipes on the subject and to date have over 100 people losing weight...whole families losing together. Sugar breaks down our skin cells (think what sugar does to fresh strawberries when we make shortcake...the juice is from the broken down strawberry skin, right? Well, same with our skin. I look 10 years younger since living this healthy lifestyle. But, I have lived in the kitchen perfecting recipes that we use everyday but yet without the sugars and white flour. Oh, I do use splenda to bake and sweeten. I hear people say they don't think this artificial sweetner is good for them. Well....I hear about thousands of people dying of sugar diabetes daily and never heard of anyone dying of splenda.
This banana bread is delicious and very good for everyone, including diabetics. My motto: Eat like a diabetic and you never will become a diabetic!

2NOTE: *WHITE whole wheat flour is made by the company King Authur and can be found in any grocery store usually. This is the best whole wheat flour because it's made with yellow wheat which is lighter than red wheat so it doesn't have that heavy taste. It's great for baking healthy and acts like regular flour but always add more moisture like vege oil or apple sauce, etc. when using any whole wheat flour. My family doesn't like whole wheat baked goods except when I use this kind of flour. Whole wheat pastas are also made with yellow as well as red wheat so if you don't want real heavy pasta try to find one that is lighter in color and that will be the one made with yellow wheat. I didn't know any of this until I started working as a secretary for a wheat mill in Quincy, MI.
