Wholesome Banana Bread Recipe
“In an effort to make more healthy homemade breakfasts, I cut a lot of fat out of my regular banana bread recipe,” writes Sarah Bialock, Yuma, Arizona. “This bread turns out so moist and delicious, you won't believe it's light!”
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tablespoons King Arthur Premium 100% Whole Wheat Flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat well. Beat in the banana, applesauce and vanilla. Combine the remaining ingredients; add to creamed mixture.
- Transfer to two 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 mini loaves (6 slices each).

Very nice and moist. I quadrupled the recipe and it made a nice amount. Everyone loved it. Next time I might add some walnuts and maybe some more whole wheat flour in it, but otherwise awesome!
