This is a random post for the week....I have made this recipe a few times when I have bananas starting to get a little mushy. It is one of those great recipes to make and freeze for another occasion! I usually make it and freeze it and then pull it out and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or so just to make it warm again....it is sooooo good when it is warm! Bread is always the best right out of the oven, I think!
This recipe is adapted from Rachel Ray's recipe online at Food Network. I changed the oil to applesauce to lesson the fat and did half whole wheat flour and half all purpose flour. I also added A little vanilla extract because everything is better with a little bit of that! Hope you enjoy!
1/4 cup of natural applesauce
3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
2 eggs or 3 egg whites
3 bananas or 1 cup of smashed bananas
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1. Mix all the dry ingredients.
2. Add applesauce, bananas, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix well.
3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Pour into one greased big loaf pan or two small ones.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 70-80 minutes for the large loaf pan OR about 25-30 minutes for the two small pans.
Hope you enjoy this healthy treat! Remember, it is always delicious when it is homemade!
