I found this recipe for banana bread on Facebook.
I loved that it used honey in place of sugar and apple sauce in place of oil. It also used the whole wheat flour that I’ve been trying to use for baking instead of the regular flour. This is the first time I’ve had banana bread made with wheat flour and I’ll say that it’s very good.
If you’re a banana bread fan and want to try to make it a different way, give this a try!
I was on my lunch break today when I was making this and my mom had never heard of making bread with apple sauce or honey. I’ll have to call her tomorrow and let her know she should make this!! Eat it fresh out of the oven and it’s really good. I didn’t have any butter on it either!! Trying to eat good can be hard sometimes but you don’t have to sacrifice either. (even though I didn’t go to Zantigo this Sunday after church!!)
Just having the kids walk in the door and ask what smelled so good was worth it today!! Puts a nice smile on your face.
- 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 F (175 degrees C). 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.
I set my timer for 60 minutes and I could smell it in my office before it went off…It took a little less than the time stated. So make sure you set your timer if you’re away from the kitchen!!
