Mikey's Banana Cranberry Nut Bread

Comment on this recipe

This receipe has been adjusted for heart healthy eating. I always double the recipe and it will make 5 small loaves. I make it for bake sales and for my family regularly and there are never any leftovers. It always sells out at bake sales and receives compliments wherever it goes.

Ingredients

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Splenda
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup banana, mashed
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk soured with 2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 heaping cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

Combine oil, sugar, Splenda, egg and vanilla until thoroughly mixed. Add mashed bananas, flour, soda, salt and sour milk. Beat until blended. Fold in dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. Bake in greased pans in a 350 degree oven until cake tester comes out clean or top springs back when touched, about 45-60 minutes depending on the size bread pan used.
