Banana bread does not last long in my house! Warm banana bread with a little butter is absolute comfort food for me. I make this lighter version now and I know it’s a hit because it vanishes just as quickly as ever!

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

3/4 cup honey

2 eggs, beaten

3 mashed overripe bananas


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey.

Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes – until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.

Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
