Baking With the Sith Witch: Banana Bread

This is what happens when I am left unsupervised..


Whenever I bake, I always try to look for ways to create a healthier version of what I am making. Using the Truvia Sweet Complete eliminates a lot of unnecessary sugars. While I’m not a big fan of Truvia sweetener in beverages, I’ve found it works really well in baked goods. I use Smart Balance all the time instead of butter in recipes and it has always worked well for me.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup Truvia Sweet Complete brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Smart Balance buttery spread
  • 4 medium overripe bananas


Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan

In a large bowl, combined the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate bowl, mash the bananas. Add the Smart Balance spread and Truvia, then blend together to a creamy texture.

Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture completely.

Pour the batter into the pan.

Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
