Clean Banana Bread

I have a ton of very ripe bananas…I love banana bread and am happy to try out a clean recipe this time.  This turned out delicious!!!  (And, for the record…this is the first clean banana bread I've ever made…I am used to dumping like a cup of sugar into my bread.  So this was a nice surprise that it even passed the husband test!!)


Clean Banana Bread, Healthy Fit Focused
Clean Banana Bread
3 egg whites
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup applesauce (I didn't have applesauce so I used 1/4 c of oil)
1/2 cup honey  (agave or any other sugar substitute)
2 cups whole wheat flour (oat flour or spelt flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
dark chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat egg whites then add mashed bananas, applesauce and sweetener. Mix thoroughly. In another bowl, mix dry ingredients. Then add the wet mixture to the dry mixture & lightly blend together. Pour mixture into a non stick loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry. Let the loaf stand in the pan for 10 minutes, I like to cover tightly with foil to make it nice and moist, then slice and serve.
