  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Spray 9x5x3 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.

  • 2.

    Whisk together the flour, Truvía® calorie-free sweetener, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.

  • 3.

    Mix the mashed bananas, buttermilk, egg, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl.

  • 4.

    Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined. The batter will be thick and chunky. Do not over-mix or your loaf will be small and tough.

  • 5.

    Scrape the batter into the loaf pan. Bake about 55 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  • 6.

    Cool in pan for 10 minutes; transfer to wire rack.
