"Clean Eating" Banana Bread

I always try to talk myself into the idea that banana bread is always healthy!  I mean, it is made with bananas, right?!  Sadly, with a cup of sugar, and a stick of butter, it doesn't exactly count as JUST a serving of fruit!

Here is the recipe I like to use, so I don't feel as bad when I can't stop eating it because there is just something about ooey, gooey chocolate chips fresh out of the oven!  Yum!!

I am sometimes too impatient to wait an entire hour for this to bake in the oven, so I will make muffins!  Same ingredients and directions, just bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean from center!

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup sugar free applesauce ... or make your own!
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 bananas, over ripe, mashed
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (50/50 with white flour if you prefer that texture)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

What You Need To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease 9x5  loaf pan.
  2. In a Medium Bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a Large Bowl, combine applesauce and honey.  Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.
  4. Combine flour mixture into the banana mixture, until well blended; just until moist.
  5. Pour into greased loaf pan, bake in preheated oven for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick come out clean from the center.  
  6. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, completely cool on wire rack.
