I'll be honest.  I don't normally purchase KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing as part of my normal shopping routine, but when I saw this recipe for Easy Banana Bread on Kraftrecipes.com, I just had to give it a try!

 Here's the original recipe (click on the image) on their website:
Looks great, doesn't it?

I am so glad I tried this recipe! Wow. Can I just say, this recipe really lives up to it's name!?  Isn't my banana bread below BEEEEE- utiful?

It started with a trip to Walmart to grab a 30 oz. jar of original KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing and some nice ripe bananas. (The brown speckled ones are best!)  You'll find the KRAFT MIRACLE WHIP Dressing in the condiment aisle,


It's hard to believe this recipe is just so easy with relatively few ingredients.  Even a non-baker can find success!  I promise.

I like to use my electric mixer to thoroughly mash the bananas when I make banana bread.  You can use my method, or just use a fork to mash them up. I like the mixer method because the banana is more uniform in the batter.  But that's just my preference.








While this bread is baking, your house will smell all kinds of wonderful!  I had a hard time waiting for the bread to cool enough for me to cut into it!

But when I was finally able to cut it, my taste buds were rewarded with sweet banana goodness. It was so very moist and dotted perfectly with crunchy walnuts.

Serve it plain or with a little bit of cream cheese like I do!

Since this recipe turned out so well, I decided to make a few more breads to give out to friends and family to celebrate the upcoming New Year! This better-for-you bread contains no butter or oil, is under 200 calories per serving (16 servings per bread), and 4.5g fat per serving (nutrition information from Kraftrecipes.com).  It's a wonderful way to start the new year!

I packaged the breads up in cellophane and tied them with a nice white ribbon and a tag that read, "New Year, New You!"  I can't wait to take one of these breads to my mom, for our annual New Year's Day celebration where my family traditionally enjoys roast pork for good luck in the upcoming new year.

  2. This doesn't surprise me at all! ;) I have made chocolate cake with mayo before, & used Greek yogurt or sour cream when making banana bread myself. Totally makes sense to me! This banana bread looks so good & moist. :)

    1. I have only made it the way the recipe is written. You could certainly try to replace the product with butter or oil, but I have not substituted those ingredients myself in this recipe.

  8. I'm not sure that Miracle is a healthy alternative to real butter, but it would probably preserve the bread longer....

    1. I agree that is does not make it healthier, but it does make it a bit more diet friendly by reducing the overall fat and calories some.

  9. I make a cake that uses mayo - makes it so moist! I'll give this a try too - I just bought 15 bananas for $1 on my discount rack! Happy New Year Renee!

    1. I have only used Miracle Whip, but I think mayo would work fine too! :)

  11. Miracle whip has lemon juice, ground mustard, and sugar in it, so the taste is quite different. If using mayo, I would add sugar to it to add the sweetness - powdered sugar is good.
