Banana Applesauce Bread

I had some overdo bananas sitting in my fruit basket so it was time to make my oh-so-good banana bread!

Banana Applesauce Bread
from the Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook
2 C whole wheat flour
1/2 c honey OR packed 1/2 c Splenda brown sugar OR regular brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 egg whites beaten until fluffy
1 C mashed bananas
1/2 C buttermilk OR skim milk with 1T lemon juice mixed in to sour
1/3 C unsweetened applesauce OR canola oil
1 tsp Watkins vanilla
1/2 C chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 C raisins (optional)
1 T orange zest (optional)
cooking spray
Preheat over to 350F. Lightly coat one bread loaf pan with cooking spray. In large bowl combine dry ingredients. In another medium bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy. Prepare soured milk and pour this, bananas, vanilla, and applesauce into a large bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just combined. Fold in egg whites, nuts, raisins, and orange zest. Pour into loaf pan and bake for 55minutes. Enjoy!
Until next time...
look good, feel good, do good

  1. I made this bread and it came out very moist. I used the 1/2 cup of honey and the apple sauce. I'm thinking next time I'll go with the brown sugar!
