80 Calorie Banana Bread

This recipe is a great way to use up an over-ripe banana and get some protein in. This banana bread is easy to make and is also gluten free and macro friendly since it is low calorie.

This recipe is not dairy free due to the Lil Buff Cake Mix, but once their vegan cake mixes are available I bet it will work to substitute the vegan mix for the FitFetti mix.

I used my Wilton mini loaf pan but you could also use a cupcake pan, small ramekins or loaf pan – just watch the cooking time to make sure you don’t over or under-cook it.

These reheat very well, I recommend reheating them in an air fryer if you have one, just make sure you put them on a piece of foil so they don’t stick.
