Healthy Banana Bread with Applesauce Recipe

Healthy Banana Bread with Applesauce Recipe - #banana #bread #recipe

I have never made banana bread before because I always thought it would be hard, but this banana bread with applesauce recipe was so easy, I can’t wait to buy more bananas!  Cutting out the butter and adding a little vanilla and cinnamon for flavor makes it delicious and moist.  Instead of butter, I used applesauce.   I hope you enjoy, it definitely didn’t last long at my house, I think it was eaten by dinner time!

    Thanks for the recipe! I used whole wheat flour, added walnuts and always sub 1/2 of the called for sugar with ground flax seed. It was delicious!!

    Great recipe! Our kids are very sensitive to sugar, get jittery even with natural oj. We substituted brown sugar and apple sauce with 7 bananas total. We also replace flour with Kodiak Power Mix. The result is amazing. We have been making the bread with variation of pineapples, bananas and apples, abs. delicious, thanks so much!!

      You could but you would have to change quite a few things so personally I wouldn’t attempt it. For one, you would need way more eggs since coconut flour soaks up liquid like crazy.

    I love your recipe! Thanks for sharing. So moist and no one can believe it is vegan :) It’s my go-to when bananas start to get brown. I wonder if you have tried any sugar substitutes like honey or maple syrup? Trying to make it even more healthy :)

    I make banana bread all the time, but I have never tried the applesauce thing. I will have to give this a try!

    Hi just made this this morning….Its only been in for 40 minutes and toothpick is already coming out clean? Is that right?

    While substituting oil for my homemade applesauce, this recipe sounds great! I’ve heard about doing this and your recipe sounds like the one I need to try.
