    Question points for banana bread? Help!

    Hi everyone. Is there anyone who has mastercook who would calculate the points for this wonderful banana bread. I usually divide it into 10-12 servings.

    5 Tbs butter
    5 Tbs I can't believe it's not butter
    2 large ripe bananas
    1/2 cup fat free sour cream
    2 eggs
    2 tsp vanilla
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    1/2 cup cake flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 tsp baking soda
    3/4 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp cinnamon sugar

    Blend together banana, sour cream, eggs and vanilla. Mix together the dry ingredients and then slowly incorporate the butter (melted) and then the wet ingredients. Add the cinnamon sugar and mix. Pour into a loaf pan (average size) and bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.

    Feel free to also give me any tips on how to make it healthier, I've already modified it in all of the ways I know how. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

    Using large eggs and lowfat margarine it comes out to the following:

    10 servings - 6 pts. each
    12 servings - 4.5 pts. each


    Be faithful, be strong, be diligent.....
    it's only good news if told in time.

    I am SOOO glad that I cut those slices in half when I have a piece, because those slices are very generous! Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could possibly make it healthier, or lower in points? I have shied away from using something like splenda because I don't think it's been around long enough to know whether or not it can cause any problems. I also have severe stomach aches from some of the other artificial sweetners. Thanks!
