Mashing up perfectly browned and sweetened bananas to use in your favorite banana bread recipe may make you think you’re getting a healthy treat. But once those bananas are mixed up with all the other ingredients and baked to a decadently sweet perfection, you’ll be getting a high-calorie piece of bread.
Calories per Piece
A single 2-ounce slice of banana bread, which weighs around 60 grams, contains nearly 200 calories. Nearly one-third of the entire amount of calories, or 57 calories, are from fat; over 65 percent of those calories, or around 130 calories, are from carbohydrates. Muscle-building protein takes up a minimal 5 percent of the calories, which is 10 calories from protein. The exact amount of calories and the macronutrient breakdown may vary slightly depending on the ingredients you use in your specific recipe.
