Healthier Banana Bread

I have never really been a big baker but the more I do it, the more I like it.  I have been experimenting with different recipes and substituting applesauce for oil in recipes.  I made a banana bread that is delicious.  It is so easy that even a non-baker can make it and have it turn out great.


2 cups flour
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
4 ripe-overripe bananas mashed with a fork

Preheat oven to 350

Mix applesauce and sugar in a bowl.  Add eggs and vanilla extract and then bananas.  Mix Flour baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a separate bowl.  Add wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until blended.

Pour into a greased 9x5 pan and bake for 60-70 minutes until golden brown on the top and a toothpick comes out clean.  



  1. Scrumptious! That banana bread made my mouth water. Yum! I'm going to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks yummy! What flour do you use in this recipe?


I look forward to your comments, they make my day!
