Recipe by Lalaloula

This quickbread is naturally sweetened with bananas and applesauce. Nuts add healthy fats and great flavour. This is great for breakfast or as a snack bread. I hope youll enjoy it as much as we do! :)

Really good bread :D I discovered a little too late that my applesauce had gone bad, so I used veggie oil instead. I also added a little extra sugar. That kinda defeats the point of it, but it still tasted amazing :D I usually use walnuts in my banana bread, but I really enjoyed these cashews :D I'll be using them from now on. Thanks for this awesome recipe! :D

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a big bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon.
  2. In a second bowl puree the banana and mix with the applesauce and egg.
  3. Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in the nuts.
  5. Fill dough into a prepared mini loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 30-45 minutes or until skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. You might need to cover the bread in order to prevent overbrowning. Check for this after 25 minutes.
