When life hands you overripe bananas…Make banana bread!

There’s only one thing I think of when my bananas start getting a little spotty - banana bread! 

I’ve tried a handful of banana bread recipes, from the basic to adding in chocolate chips - or one of my favorite, mini Reese’s cups!

I saw a recipe for “healthy banana bread” pop up on Pinterest a few days ago and decided to repin it on my Getting Healthy board. A couple days later my bananas were in prime banana bread form so I gave it a try.

The verdict: this bread is friggin’ delicious! It is way more moist than I was expecting, which I’m guess has to do with using honey instead of sugar. Definitely slicing this up to have for breakfast this week. Maybe with a smear of peanut butter?

I got the recipe from 8 Weeks to a Better You Recipes and didn’t change a thing, except I used two mini loaf pans instead of one large one.

Healthy Banana Bread
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar free applesauce
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs, beaten
3 mashed overripe bananas

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan, or two mini loaf pans.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together apple sauce and honey. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.
3. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan(s).
4. Bake for 50-55min for two small loaf pans, or 60-65min for a 9x5 loaf pan. You should be able to stick a toothpick or piece of spaghetti into the bread and have it come out clean.
5. Let cool then enjoy!
