Banana Bread with Applesauce, WW Points Plus - 5

I love, love, love banana bread.  Very hard to find a good one out there that is moist, and gives you a nice serving size (have you ever cut a loaf of banana bread into 14 slices?  Get real!)  This recipe makes a nice, large loaf, and I ran it using 9 servings.  If you make a dozen muffins instead, they are 4 points each.

First Attempt today turned out pretty well.    I used

4 Bananas
1 large egg
1/2 cup egg beaters
1 1/2 cup flour
Tbsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar
1/3 cup Splenda
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.

I mixed the bananas, egg beaters, egg, applesauce, and vanilla until the bananas were pretty well smashed.  Added the dry ingredients - until everything is moist - dump it into a sprayed loaf pan (I just LOVE the Pam spray for baking !) and bake at *350 for about 40 minutes.  It turned out awesome.  So good that the first loaf disappeared before I could get a photo, so I made another, and added just a small handful of chocolate chips.  The 5 points are for the bread WITHOUT the chocolate chips - add another point if you use them !  Of course, they cut into this one before it cooled off as well, but I still managed to snap a photo.  Now to go back and see if they left me any !

This looks wonderful. My neighbor is doing WW and I am counting calories, so this is probably something we can share. I don't think I've ever seen Splenda brown sugar though.

I have a question for you, oh queen of the bargain hunters. If you wanted a motion activated, infrared, security camera with good quality - at least good enough to see what is going on - where would you start looking?
