Banana Nut Bread with NEW C&H Light: Sugar & Stevia Blend

We love Banana Nut Bread in our family and I recently had the opportunity to bake the bread using the NEW C&H Light: Sugar & Stevia Blend.  C&H® Light is an all natural pure cane sugar and stevia blend with half the calories of sugar.  That’s over a 350-calorie savings in each cup!  By blending pure cane C&H® Sugar with a naturally sweet extract from the stevia plant, we have created a delicious sweetener with no artificial ingredients.  C&H® Light is the ideal sweetener — a perfect sweet taste and half the calories of sugar!  You can follow C&H Light on Facebook.

C&H® Light is available in two packages:

2 lb. Resealable Pouch

Ideal for baking or for everyday sweetening, the 2 lb. pouch offers the same sweetness as a 4 lb. bag of sugar.
It’s easy to bake with C&H® Light. Replace 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of C&H® Light in your recipes.
5 Calories per serving


40-Count Packet Box

Convenient for travel, in the office, or any time.
These portion control packets provide all-natural sweetness for sprinkling or stirring.
C&H® Light packets contain only 5 calories per packet!



2 cups Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 egg
4 medium Bananas, mashed
1/2 cup C&H Light Sugar
1/4 cup Cooking Oil
1 cup Chopped Walnuts (or Pecans)

1. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a loaf pan. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon Salt. Make a well in the center of dry mixture; set aside.

2. In another bowl, beat the egg. Combine the egg, mashed bananas, sugar, and cooking oil. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture all at once. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in nuts

3. Spoon the batter into the loaf pan. Bake in a 350° oven for approximately 55 minutes (or until toothpick inserted comes out clean).  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.  Remove loaf from pan and cool on a wire rack.  Wrap and store overnight before slicing.  Makes 1 loaf.

**If you want your bread a little sweeter, simply warm the bread and sprinkle the C&H Light: Sugar & Stevia Blend over the top of the loaf.**

    The bread looks delicious! I can’t wait to get the new C&H light sugar, so glad they are using stevia instead of splenda. I can’t wait to make my mango bread with it. Great review thank you!

  2. Sarah L says:

    I haven’t tried this yet. I use stevia but sometimes it has an aftertaste I don’t like. When it’s blended with the C&H it should taste good.
