Banana Bread

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Servings: 1

Ingredients

1 ¾ cups flour    (You can use unbleached all-purpose or spelt. If you are gluten-free feel free to use a GF blend or even oat flour)

⅓ cup cane sugar or ¼ cup cane sugar with 2 tablespoons coconut sugar 

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

⅓ cup applesauce

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 large overripe bananas, mashed

¼ cup almond milk (or oat milk)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan.
  • In one medium sized mixing bowl: mash the bananas, add applesauce and vanilla extract, then mix again.
  • To this mixture, add the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well, but don’t overmix, just until the flour is combined. Batter will be a little thick and there will be a few lumps, so no worries. If the mixture seems a little too thick, add a bit more milk, especially if using heavier flours such as whole wheat or spelt.
  • Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake for about 50 minutes.
  • Insert toothpick in bread to test if it’s done. If it comes out clean it means your bread is ready!
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
