I recently spent the night at a nice hotel with my husband, in the morning they served us a delicious continental type breakfast right to our room πŸ™‚ On the tray was a incredibly yummy fresh baked strawberry loaf with a crumble on top and it was to die for… It was just a tiny loaf and my guess is each little piece was way more points than I wanted to spare, but I enjoyed a little anyway.. I then said I must try and recreate this in a WW friendly way πŸ™‚ I had to get creative though because we have a shortage on strawberries right now in Ontario and stores want $7.99/lb for them!!!! So I thought jam would be a great alternative, I also added the banana as I knew that would help keep the loaf low in points.. It is simply scrumptious.. one of my favorite loaves I have made to date, and the sugar crumble on top is OMG yum!! Makes 10 nice sized pieces at 4 freestyle smart points each.

  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites I buy the "just egg whites" cartons, 1/4 cup is 2
  • 2 mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup plain or vanilla greek yogurt 0%
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam I use a less sugar kind
  • Crumble topping
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2.5 Tbsp flour
  • 3/4 Tbsp melted reduced fat margarine


  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a regular sized loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl mix your flour, sugar and baking soda together
  • In a small bowl using an electric mixer beat your banana and eggs, add in yogurt and vanilla and mix.
  • Pour wet ingredients into your dry and mix well, batter will be thick.
  • Place about 2/3 of your batter into the loaf pan.
  • Put your jam in a small zip lock bag and cut of a small hole, drizzle the jam over the batter in your pan. Top with remaining batter and spread out, its okay if some of the jam is showing.
  • In a small bowl mix your sugar and flour, add your melted margarine and mix til a crumble is formed. Sprinkle on top of loaf
  • Bake in the oven for about 40-43 minutes, let cool and cut into 10 slices, 4 personal points and 4 freestyle smart points per serving on all 3 MyWW programs .. Please note when figuring out points I do not add bananas in, I never count fruit whether it be alone or in a recipe for points plus and for smart points we don't have to add the fruit, however the nutritional info includes the bananas and this may affect the points if you enter the numbers into the calculator.

  1. Omgsh this was so delicious! I made this for me and my family…but I’ve already ate half of it by myself! This is going to be a staple at my house for sure! Thanks for sharing!

      You can try apple sauce but I can’t guarantee it will bake up the same

  2. Just made this, total success. It’s my second time baking sweets and this was very easy. I used brown sugar and pineapple presereves, so my loaf looks dark brown. I also used light sour cream instead of yoghurt, because it is what I had on hand.
    Fool proof. Husband approved. Thank you much.
