Mr. Divabetic  11/18/2021  Food and NutritionRecipesUncategorizedStacey Harris aka The Diabetic Pastry Chef captured the hearts and the taste buds of our attendees on Divabetic’s free Baking Party in  September. She will be returning to demonstrate how to make sugar-free Linzer tarts on December’s Divabetic Baking Party on Zoom.After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, Stacey Harris (The Diabetic Pastry Chef) taught herself how to make pound cake, pecan rolls, pies, muffins, cupcakes, and other baked goods with about half the carbs you’d get from traditional bakery items.

Sugar-Free Sour Cream Banana Bread Recipe by The Diabetic Pastry Chef


1- 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup sugar substitute, your favorite

2 eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a mixing bowl.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine melted butter, sugar substitute, eggs, and vanilla extract. Next, fold in sour cream or yogurt, nuts, and bananas.

Combine the two mixtures and stir, combining well, or use an electric mixer, mixing just until combined. Do not overmix.

Spread batter in a loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.

Note: The sugar substitutes that The Diabetic Pastry used were a mixture of half Splenda and half Whey Low D Granular. She doubled the recipe and baked it in a large Pullman loaf pan. She also sprinkled the nuts on top of the loaf instead of mixing them into the batter.

Now people with diabetes, “Divabetics”, can have their cake and eat it too thanks to Stacey Harris aka The Diabetes Pastry Chef and her simple four-part substitution system that turns any decadent dessert into a diabetic-friendly delight. Visit: Find out more about this book
