This banana bread tastes great. It uses brown sugar or splenda and molasses for sweetening. This banana bread tastes great. It uses brown sugar or splenda and molasses for sweetening.
Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/4 cup white flour
    1/2 cup whole grain flour
    1 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    3 Tbsp cold milled ground flax seed meal
    3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 Tbsp molasses
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 8X8X2-inch baking pan with olive oil. In a medium sized bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda and ground flax meal. In a mixing bowl, mix applesauce, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, olive oil and mashed bananas. Stir in banana mixture with flour mixture until well mixed. Mixture will be thick. Mix in chopped nuts and mix well. Fold into greased pan with a rubber spatula. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. You may have to bake it up to 60 minutes.

You may substitute appricots, plums, dates, or any mashed fruit for applesauce. If you prefer using Splenda instead of brown sugar, use 7 or 8 small packets.

I like this recipe, because there are no eggs and very little fat. It took me a couple of years to perfect it and it is a winner for brunches, breakfast bread or a snack.

  • I made this for my niece that is allergic to milk and eggs. I loved it so much that it will become a standard in my house. Very moist and good tasting. - 6/23/11

  • The bread was very moist, however, it had a "whang" to it that my family did not like. I may try it again next time without the flax seed. - 7/26/08
