Yummy Healthy Banana Bread

Yummy Healthy Banana Bread created by cinq1774

I made this recipe twice in 2 days as my friends and family all enjoyed it so much. It makes a moist, chewy yet soft bread/ cake with lots of banana flavour but not too sweet which suits my taste better. No eggs, no butter, no oil, quick and easy.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven at 160 deg C (325 F). Grease 7X7" tin or a 9X5" bread tin. 7x7" cooks faster.
  • Mix applesauce and sugar in a bowl. If using unsweetened applesauce, add about 2 tablespoons of sugar extra.
  • Add bananas and mix. Add flour, salt, vanilla essence and baking soda. Mix quickly but thoroughly.
  • Pour into tin. Sprinkle with some brown sugar and cinnamon powder. Put into oven immediately.
  • Bake till a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean (A little mashed banana on the knife is ok as there's so much fruit. If in doubt, taste to see it doesn't taste of raw flour).
  • Ovens vary so always check about 5mins before when you think it will be ready. About 50mins in a fan-assisted oven for 7X7" tin.

    Turned out pretty awesome!! We made muffins, added mini chocolate chips and heath toffee chips...also added a little cinnamon to the batter as others advised. Super yummy (accordi g to my 10 yr old and 3 yr old ??)

    Yowza! What a tasty banana bread! Following the suggestion from the reviewers, I added cinnamon to the batter (I won't next time, though - it masks the banana flavour). I added one egg and two tablespoons of vegetable oil to this recipe, just to ensure proper rise and no tough product, but I will try omitting the egg next time. This was a spectacular recipe. The brown sugar/cinnamon topping alone was worth the cost of admission. Try this recipe! It rocks!

    Wonderful recipe! The only change I'd make next time is to add some cinnamon to it.

    Truly, truly awesome recipe. I wasn't even looking for egg-free - just something that used applesauce instead of oil. It came out perfect -- no sodden bricks! Thank you!
