Sugar Free Banana Bread for Babies

This is a tasty yet sweet treat without any added sugar.  Great for using up bananas which are getting a bit black in the fruit bowl; in fact it's better to use them as they will be sweeter.  I'm quite pleased with this.  Although it doesn't use as many bananas as some banana loaf recipes, it's a much lighter recipe for it.

Banana Bread for Babies, Toddlers and Adults - makes one large loaf


160g Banana, mashed (approx 1 and a half large, or two small)
75ml Oil
100ml Milk
2 eggs
250g SR flour
1/2 tsp Mixed spice or Pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
150g Sultanas
1 tsp Vanilla Extract


Preheat the oven to 175oC.  Grease a silicone loaf tin or line and grease a regular loaf tin.

Whisk with an electric or manual whisk the banana, oil, milk and eggs until they are combined and creamy.  Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.  Pour into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until cooked.

Allow to cool slightly before slicing.

If you like this, you'll love the no added sugar date cake recipe.  If anything it's sweeter but there's still no added sugar and you'd never guess from the taste!

  4. Great that you linked in, thanks. have a good one

  5. I am loving your recipes! Could you fill in this clueless American on what mixed spice contains? Thanks! Looking forward to trying this recipe.

    1. Thanks and sorry! Off the top of my head, cinnamon, coriander, probably some ginger. I'd substitute for pumpkin pie spice.

    2. Just looked at my pack in the cupboard, it contains cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, clove, pimento and ginger. Wikipedia says pumpkin pie spice is the closest thing!

  6. Can you tell me what 'SR' flour is? Thanks so much!!

    1. Sorry it's self raising flour. You could substitute all purpose flour and 2 tsp baking powder.
