Low Calorie Blueberry Banana Bread

This  Blueberry Banana Bread is a great way to get some blueberries into your diet!  It uses mashed bananas and apple sauce for sweetness and moisture so it is healthy too!

My husband is on a wellness journey and losing weight steadily so I have to be careful not to decimate his diet or resolve!   This loaf works out to about 3 Weight Watcher Free Style Smart points per slice.  The loaf should produce about 14 slices.

The bananas and applesauce make this loaf moist without all the calories of oil.  It freezes beautifully and keeps well for a few days as well.

I am sure you could substitute other berries for the blueberries if you like.

Chef’s Tip

If you coat your blueberries with a bit of flour they will not sink to the bottom of your loaf.  You can stir them in and they will stay put.  You will get a more even distribution of fruit.

I like to make them in mini loaf pans so I have smaller versions. I used four  3  1/2″ X 6″ disposable loaf pans for these.  In that case they are baked in roughly 30 minutes.  I like the minis because we can enjoy one fresh and freeze the others.

They also make nice hostess gifts no matter which size.  I also made a Blueberry Zucchini set of loaves that were delicious but not as low cal as this one!
