Banana Bread


So autumn is upon us and it’s time to get back into the kitchen and start creating!!  Here is a healthier version of the classic banana bread.  This version may be even yummier than the original – I think so but I’ll let you be the judge!  Simple to make and a great way to use up the extra bananas.  You can also add walnuts or cacao nibs to add more crunch and texture!  Makes a great quick breakfast toasted and topped with almond butter!Banana Bread

Ingredients:

•   1/3 cup natural unsweetened applesauce
•   1/2 cup natural brown sugar
•   3 egg whites
•   3 bananas, mashed
•   2 tbsp chia seeds
•   1/3 cup water
•   1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
•   1/3 cup coconut flour
•   1 tsp baking soda
•   1/4 tsp baking powder
•   cooking spray

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Mix applesauce and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Gently stir in egg whites then add mashed bananas and water.  Add dry ingredients and stir until well combined.  Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray and then pour in mixture.  Bake for 55 – 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Enjoy!
