1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c honey
3 overripe bananas, mashed
2 c all purpose unbleached flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 2 9x5 loaf pans or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In medium bowl, mix applesauce and honey together. Add eggs and mashed bananas and stir well. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir just until combined. Do not over mix.
Divide between prepared pans and bake 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when touched. Makes 16 slices, 8 per loaf.
Chef's Note: Using 2 baking pans reduces the baking time by half, as most banana bread recipes bake for an hour. Using honey in place of refined sugar and applesauce in place of oil cuts the calories to 121 per slice.
