Banana Bread

1 Mar

As always, I try to find healthy alternatives to traditional recipes, and this banana bread is no exception.  It is deliciously dense and quite nutritious.  You won’t need to say no to another piece!  ~Caydie


Ingredients:

4 1/2 cups whole wheat or oat flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3 egg whites and 2 whole eggs

2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

8 ripe bananas, mashed

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

2 cups chopped walnuts

1 1/2 cup minced dried blueberries or raisins

1 Tbsp canola oil

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Lightly grease and flour two 9×5″ loaf pans.

2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir in eggs, applesauce, bananas and vanilla extract.  Fold in blueberries (or raisins) and nuts.  Pour batter into the prepared pans.

3.  Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Yields:

2 loaves.
