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!
- 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.
