It's healthy - promise! Tons of wholesome ingredients including whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and honey. Applesauce takes the place of oil or butter, and we have a banana bread that can actually be nourishing for breakfast. This is made in about 10 minutes in one bowl, and the house smells incredible as the bread bakes. Bonus: chocolate chips for breakfast.
mashed banana (about 4 small very ripe bananas, it's ok if you have more than a cup)
applesauce (one individual cup)
half and half (you can use any milk you like, but I love the richness of half and half here)
1 1/5 cups
whole wheat flour
dark chocolate chips
In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350F and spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl combine the banana, applesauce, honey, egg, milk, and vanilla until creamy. Make a well in the center of the wet ingredients and add the remaining ingredients, reserving a few oats for sprinkling over the top if you'd like. Combine the dry ingredients gently, then fold into the wet mixture until just mixed. Pour into a loaf pan and sprinkle with extra oats.
Bake for 60-70 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then remove from the pan to a rack to cool completely before covering or slicing and serving.
