Easy Banana Bread

One of the best fruits to have around the house is bananas. They are great before a workout to provide extra energy and control blood sugar. I just happen to be really picky with my bananas. I prefer to have them more on the green side. Chris likes his more ripe. So when they become extra ripe, what else to do than make banana bread?

I found a recipe last year that I used to make banana bread. Chris and I were looking for a healthier recipe, and we found one using applesauce. A huge thank you to My Thoughts for Thought for this recipe:

3 Bananas
1 Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup of Applesauce
2 Cups of Flour
1 TSP of Baking Soda
1/2 TSP of Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In one bowl, mash bananas, and then add the sugar, eggs, and applesauce. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Once thoroughly mixed, pour into 2 greased bread pans. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick is removed clean.

I have LOVED this new recipe. I hope you all do too!


  1. Yay! I love banana bread! Your recipe is pretty similar to mine, but I use vanilla yogurt instead of applesauce.

    And I add a few chocolate chips. Cause us Wilders are fat kids. :)
