This comes out so moist, and you cut out most of the fat using applesauce. This comes out so moist, and you cut out most of the fat using applesauce.
Number of Servings: 12


    2 cups flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    3 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 egg
    3/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1 1/2 cups mashed bananas


Preheat oven to 350. Grease bread loaf pan, unless it's non stick.

Mix all dry ingredients into a large bowl, make sure to mix well.

Mix all wet ingredients in another bowl, make sure to mix thoroughly.

Add liquid mix to dry mix and stir thoroughly.

Put into bread loaf pan and cook for approximately 55 to 65 minutes. I always start checking the colour around 50 minutes, should be a nice golden brown. Insert a toothpick in centre to check if it's done. Toothpick may be moist from bananas, just make sure it's not moist from batter.

Let bread cool in pans for about 5 to 10 minutes. Run a knife along outside edge to loosen sides.

Looking for something sweet, add chocolate chips, just make sure to add in your calories.

This bread is great warm with peanut butter on it.

    I got 12 fabulous and HUGE slices of banana bread. I used 1/2 regular flour and 1/2 whole wheat. I reduced the sugar from 3/4c to a little less than 1/2 and added cinnamon and chocochips. PERFECT! - 5/2/09

    You can actually omit the egg and just use applesauce too and cut out even more fat. I cup applesauce to 2 eggs - 2/26/09

    Yum! I just made this. I doubled the recipe and made one batch into muffins, adding 1/2 cup pecans, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup of coconut. The muffins are great - and the bread is still baking. (Muffins took 20 minutes.) - 3/7/10

    Oh wow! This is SO good. This was my first attempt at making banana bread. My kids love it. Even my husband is going back for a second peice. I did add a half tsp of vanilla and half tsp of cinnamon to it. - 7/13/08

    I used 1 cup wheat flour, 1 cup white and 1/2 cup splenda as well as egg beaters for the egg. I'm thinking I really cut down on the calories and it was still good! - 1/30/09
