Healthy Banana Bread

I love anything BANANA!  I wanted to make a bread that was lower in calories though so I could eat more of it, and share it with my diet conscious family or friends.  It tastes healthy but delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2-3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1   2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
optional ingredients for more flavor/ spice: vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan.  Mix the applesauce and sugar.  Stir in egg whites and bananas, then water.  Stir in dry ingredients.   Pour mixture into loaf pan and bake about 1 hour or until a knife inserted in middle comes out clean.
