Banana bread does not last long in my house! Warm banana bread with a little butter is absolute comfort food for me. I make this lighter version now and I know it’s a hit because it vanishes just as quickly as ever!
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs, beaten
3 mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey.
Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.
Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes – until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
