Watch Chef John's video, worth it. Like many people, I made changes to the recipe for healthy(er) choices. Plant based vs man created junk IMO
I used Organic Coconut Oil Carrington Farms(Costco)Solid form instead of Butter
Almond Milk instead of Dairy Milk
Truvia Baking Blend Sugar 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup regular sugar
The batter seemed to be a little bit thicker which may have to do with the coconut oil and Truvia changes. I folded in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Didn't over stir.
It looks, raises well in the middle, not a flat top loaf at all, and smells just like regular Banana Bread and tastes incredible. I'd say at least as good as the recipe without the changes, since I've had both kinds. Used 3 normal (about 3/4-1c) banana's and stayed with the same amounts on all the other ingredients and folded in the flour mixture.Baked in my Breville Convection Toaster Oven. I'll report back when my husband tastes it.
Saved 30mg cholesterol/serving, 75% less sugar calories and lactose free. Hope this helps others who didn't want to take the plunge. It's really an excellent option and you aren't suffering on taste and texture. Something I learned a long time ago was if you don't like the splitting in the loaf, run a knife down the top middle of the batter, to avoid the typical splitting.
