Healthy Banana Bread Recipe!

Healthy Banana Bread Recipe!

Applesauce is a great substitute for oil when baking! It still provides a nice, moist texture and it is MUCH healthier than oil! This week I played with my grandma’s banana bread recipe to make it a “healthy” version! I had two people try it (besides myself since I’ve been told I have a “healthy” pallet now and “everything” healthy tastes good to me) and they both gave it two thumbs up! I hope you like it too! Enjoy!


  • 3 Large Mashed Bananas
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 1/2 Cups Splenda (*I have also used 1/2 Cup Pure Grade A Honey with 1 Cup Splenda)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla (or Vanilla Extract)
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mas the three large bananas and then add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Spray a 9 x 5″ loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray (Pam) and sprinkle with flour to coat the pan evenly.
  • Pour batter into the pan and bake at 325 for about 1 hour.
  • Enjoy!

This turned out really good! I used 3/4 cup oat flour and 3/4 cup unbleached flour and it still came out well. Although the oat flour does add a little bit of a “spongy” texture, which I still like. I also made this into muffins instead of a loaf for easy individual servings! Thanks for the recipe!!
