I absolutely love this bread - it's a very nice, guilt-free sweet treat. For added loveliness add a nutty frosting:
  • 2 cups splenda - 2 tablespoons vanilla soymilk - 1 tablespoon vanilla flavoring - ½ cup pecans
  • Blend splenda, soymilk & vanilla flavoring to a syrupy consistency - then stir in pecans.
  • Drizzle over the banana bread
