Oh my. I have found my MUST HAVE banana bread recipe. And guess what? It has NO REFINED SUGAR! I adapted this recipe I found over at Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life to suit my needs.
Normally I like a good banana bread but this one sends me through the ROOF! It’s so delicious! The only changes I made to her recipe:
-Using the full 1/2 cup of applesauce in place of the oil, applesauce, yogurt combo (though since I found no applesauce in my house I used blueberry pear baby food)
-Completely omitting the sugar, I found the bananas to be plenty sweet for my taste
-Trading 1/4 cup of the whole wheat flour for 1/4 cup of wheat bran
-Swapping the blueberries for chopped up strawberries (Kyle isn’t fond of blueberries)
I’m drooling just thinking about it. So delicious piping hot with some Brummel on it. Mmmmm…
My only problem was I couldn’t wait longer than 15 minutes to dig into it and tried to take it out of its happy little loaf pan too early. It fell apart on the bottom. So it doesn’t look so pretty. But that’s ok – I’ll devour it anyway!
