tasty treats


A full flavored quick bread made with ripe bananas. Oats provide extra fiber and a “hearty” texture. Pure Via reduces the calories, but not the flavor!

6 tablespoons (90 mL) butter, softened
24 packets Pure Via sweetener
1 cup (250 mL) mashed very ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
2 eggs
1/4 cup (50 mL) 1% low fat milk

3/4 (175 mL) cup uncooked old fashioned oats
2 teaspoons (10 mL) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) EACH baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt
1/3 cup (75 mL) chopped nuts
