Healthy Banana Bread with Applesauce Recipe - MyNaturalFamily.com #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!

    Please note: There is salt listed in the ingredients, but it’s not listed in the directions. As a result, I forgot the salt when I was making this. Don’t make the same mistake I did!!

      Sorry about the confusion. I fixed the problem. You put the salt with the flour and other dry ingredients. I am sorry you missed the salt.

    I made this this morning but made muffins instead of loaf. I also sub. 1/2 the flour for wheat flour and used 1/2 the amount of sugar. I used splenda brown sugar blend. I doubled the cinn. I also added some frozen blue berries to the muffins before putting in the oven. Yummmmmy!!

    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 :)

      • Christian says

        When you substitute with honey and/or maple syrup, is the amount used the same as sugar? And do you use both honey and maple syrup or can you choose one?

        • Rebecca says

          Yes. Equal amounts. You can choose if you want to do both or one. Basically what I do though is use honey in place of white sugar and maple syrup in place of brown sugar.

    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?

  8. Marsha says

    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.
