Lemon cranberry banana bread

I tried this last week and tweaked a few things and it really didn't work out so I decided to try it again today.

I printed out this recipe and just tweaked a couple of things today. I replaced the sugar with sweetener and used lemon extract instead of orange. With the tweaks and making 3 mini loaves that had 6 slices each they came out to 1pp/slice.

Think of the possibilities: cocoa/white chocolate chip, banana pecan, pumpkin cranberry, lemon poppyseed etc

Lemon cranberry banana bread

1 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2c sweetener that measures like sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla vanilla extract

1/2 cup of egg substitute or 2 eggs
1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
3 mashed very ripe bananas approximately 1 cup
1 tsp of lemon extract
1 cup of fresh or frozen cranberries cut in half
1 tbsp lemon zest

mix together all dry ingredients
in a separate bowl mix eggs, applesauce, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lemon zest and mashed bananas
stir banana mixture into dry mixture then fold in cranberries
do not over stir, stir just till dry ingredients are incorporated
