This is a moist banana bread recipe that I make fairly often with leftover, very ripe bananas. I add more mashed banana and applesauce instead of oil, which makes this recipe so moist!
1/3 cup organic applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup raw or local honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cage-free organic eggs
1 3/4 cups mashed ripe bananas
1 3/4 cups organic whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup hot spring water
1/2 teaspoon organic ceylon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped organic walnuts (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
- In a large bowl, beat applesauce and honey together. Add eggs, and mix well. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and cinnamon. Add baking soda to hot water, stir to mix, and then add to batter.
- Blend in walnuts (optional). Spread batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan.
- Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 1/2 hour before slicing.
