Whole Wheat Banana Bread

This week I have really been craving baking! Most of this summer I have done very little baking so I was bitten by the bug! I also had some bananas that were way past their prime, so what’s a girl to do? Make banana bread!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

I found this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction, and I can definitely recommend it! It’s low calorie, whole wheat, oil free, low sugar, and high on deliciousness!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 mashed over ripe bananas
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Place oven rack in lower third of oven, preheat to 350. Spray loaf pan with non stick spray.

In medium bowl combine applesauce, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, and milk. Then mix in eggs and bananas until smooth (I used a hand mixer to get it was smooth as possible). In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix just until completely combined, do not overmix.

Pour batter into greased loaf pan, and bake for about an hour. Loosely cover bread with aluminum foil after 30 minutes, checking the bread for doneness with a toothpick after 50 minutes or so. Allow bread to cool in pan on a wire rack before slicing.

Enjoy! This loaf makes 12 servings at 150 calories each! I ate mine with a little bit of butter, so delicous! 🙂
