Low-Fat Applesauce Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Melisser

No oil allowed here! Take a walk on the lighter side of baking, but keep the flavor!

Top Review by jenne

I would vote it a three and my husband voted it a five, so I ended up at three. It was a little dense, obviously due to the lack of oil. I think 1/2 tsp of salt (as in the Betty Crocker recipe) might add some flavor to this one. Overall, it was a healthy treat!
