Pan de Banano Estilo Hondureño (Honduran-Style Banana Bread)

Cuisine: Honduran
Servings: 6 servings

Banana bread pudding is a delicious treat enjoyed by adults and children alike! It is not only yummy, creamy and easy-to-make, but also very cost-effective. However, traditional recipes call for considerable amounts of butter and sugar. This modified version is lower in sugar and fat than most recipes. The key here is replacing some of the fat with unsweetened applesauce, and use non-calorie granulated blend sweetener. This variation makes this recipe suitable for diabetics, keeping in mind the importance of portion control.
