What is it about a slice of something sweet that just makes your whole day better? I could be having the absolute worst day and then I sit down with a pastry and all is right in the world. Talk about eating your feelings.

Most of the time I give myself a little guilt trip for indulging a little too often. But today is not one of those days my friends.

Today is boozy banana day.

With a little bit of raisins to even the score.

And rum. Because I live life on the wild side.

I kid. Since Baby Stella was born, my husband and I consume most of our alcohol in the form of vanilla extract, mouth wash, and the occasional shot of NyQuil. But now we are really expanding our horizons by adding rum extract to the mix. Like I said, wild.

I haven’t told you the BEST part about this bread…it’s skinny!

This skinny banana rum raisin bread has no oil, eggs, or butter. It is my new favorite breakfast and any snack in-between. I’ve made 3 loaves this week and they have all disappeared. Let’s talk bread. You’ll need very ripe bananas. Browner is better. Of course if you are impatient then just just throw your bananas in a brown paper bag on the counter and they’ll get ripe real quick. I substituted out the oil for unsweetened applesauce and protein rich greek yogurt for the eggs. You really won’t miss all the fat. I did leave a little bit of brown sugar in because I just couldn’t resist.

    Mariah – Rum Raisin Bread sounds delicious; this is the ideal snack on a busy morning especially since it’s not loaded with butter like some banana breads. I can totally see myself eating half a loaf in one sitting. 🙂

    Hi! I made your skinny banana rum raisin bread this morning. I liked it and will probably make again. My bread was very well done at 60 minutes so I’ll make a note of that on the recipe. The bottom and sides of my bread were also very dark and tasted almost burnt. Should I try baking it at 350 next time. Thanks for any advice. I’m looking forward to trying some of your other recipes that I have pinned. ; )

      Hi Kaye! I am so glad you liked this bread! It is one of my favorites!
      In response to your question, I would say that every oven is different and unfortunately some do not bake evenly. For next time, I would start by baking at 350° and only bake for 50 minutes and then check it. If a toothpick comes out clean then you should be good, if not, bake in 5 minute additional increments until cooked throughout and the toothpick comes out clean. Good Luck!
