Ingredients

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup stevia-erythritol blend (I used Steviva) or granulated stevia

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Whisk together the stevia blend and the butter until well mixed.
  3. Add in the bananas, yogurt, egg, and vanilla. With a hand mixer, beat until creamy.

  5. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet one, beating well.
  6. Pour the batter into a gently oiled and floured 9×5 inch loaf pan and spread evenly.
