Banana Bread with Apple Sauce
Whether you need a quick breakfast, easy snack, or more options for lunch packs, this easy banana bread is the perfect recipe to add to your repertoire. Applesauce and mashed bananas keep it moist sans butter and oil, and most of the ingredients (like cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda) can probably be found in your pantry.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 ½ cups Thrive Market Sprouted White Wheat Flour ¾ cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Cinnamon 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon sea salt ½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Nutmeg 2 eggs, lightly beaten 3 very ripe bananas, mashed ¼ cup Thrive Market Organic Apple Sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with 1 tablespoon butter. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Add eggs, mashed bananas, and applesauce; stir just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing. Recipe by: Angela Gaines
