My healthy banana bread with applesauce recipe is the perfect combination of fruits to make a wonderfully moist and tasty sweet bread. We make banana bread at our house a lot because it's the perfect way to use up old bananas.
The recipe is healthy as written, but there are some things you can do to make it even healthier, like subbing pure maple syrup for the brown sugar or replacing the all-purpose flour with equal parts gluten-free flour or spelt flour , which is Clean Eating.

Instead of butter, I used applesauce. Cutting out the butter and adding a little vanilla and cinnamon for flavor makes it delicious and moist. I guess that once you try this recipe, you'll like it better than banana bread with oil.
I love banana bread for lunch and it's a favorite of my children in their school lunches. I often make mini banana bread muffins because they are very child-friendly and not as messy.
I hope you enjoy this healthy banana bread recipe - it definitely didn't last long at my house - it was eaten by dinner time!Print
