I just discovered an amazing low calorie banana bread mix that is also organic and gluten free! I know I usually blog about recipes or easy low cal ideas, but I am such a huge fan of this low calorie banana bread mix that I had to share.
Lately, I’ve been eating mostly organic foods. I’ve also been trying to cut out gluten as I feel a lot better when I don’t eat it. Miraculously, the dark circles under my eyes that I used to spend a few minutes concealing every morning are gone. But, that’s another story…
This awesome low calorie banana bread mix is made by the company “Simply Organic” and I am in love with so many of their products. Including their gluten-free, organic, cocoa cayenne cupcakes, they’re spicy so just one is satisfying! I have yet to try their low calorie carrot cake mix, as I have my own favorite recipe that I’ve blogged about in the past.
The ingredients for this low cal banana bread are simple: 1 box of mix, 2 large eggs, 3/4 cup of water and two ripe bananas. You don’t need milk, oil, or butter, which totally cuts down on the calories. One 1/2″ slice is only 90 calories prepared! It’s so good with some low-fat cream cheese for a great breakfast treat. The texture is perfect and you’d never guess this banana bread is made from a low calorie, fat free and gluten free bread mix.
Most cake or bread mixes on the market are filled with all sorts of junk, but this mix is pretty simple: Organic brown rice flour, organic fair trade certified cane sugar, xantham gum, monocalcium phosphate, organic cinnamon, organic cornstarch, baking soda, sea salt and organic allspice.
I pay $4 and some change for one box of this banana bread mix at my local health food store. I think that’s a great deal!
UPDATE: This is also GF banana bread is also FANTASTIC with an added 1/2 cup of blueberries. Give it a try!
