Better For You Banana Bread
Better For You Banana Bread isn't a diet food, but has better ingredients while still tasting as decadent as the bread that's full of fats and sugar.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 27 mins
Total Time 45 mins
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour I used unbleached
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt I used kosher
- 1 cup bananas mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup raw sugar (turbinado)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 350°F. And spray either 1 loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans with the non-stick method of your choice.
In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, applesauce, sugar, vanilla, egg whites, and cinnamon.
In a medium bowl, combine flours, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk together.
Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Pour into a bread pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake mini loaves 27 to 30 minutes or one large loaf 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
