Banana Bread (Easy + Healthier)

banana bread apple sauce

Traditionally I make banana bread with either ½ cup of oil or 1 stick of butter which lends to a very moist and rich bread.  I’ve heard that you can replace the oil with apple sauce for a lighter version.  I had never tried it before because I thought it would compromise the taste and flavor.   I figured it’s time to give apple sauce a chance…honestly, The Jamie Oliver Food Revolution has been a wake up call for me.  It makes me more conscience about food and more aware about saving a few calories & cutting fat here and there.  Little changes in your diet can make a difference in your overall health.  Trust me — you won’t miss the oil or butter in this recipe.  You’ll find this banana bread slightly denser with a very pleasant chewy texture.  It’s moist and very flavorful.  The hint of cinnamon in the apple sauce compliments the bananas quite well.

    Love this bread! For the boys in my house, I add a couple tablespoons of powdered peanut butter, and instead of nuts, add chocolate chips. I call it my Elvis bread lol, and they don’t realize that it’s a fairly healthy option.
