  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
Container: 9 x 5 loaf pan or two smaller loaf pans
30 mins
60 mins
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and sides of the loaf pan(s).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, soda, and salt.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine the honey and applesauce; stir to mix evenly.
  • Add the eggs and mashed bananas to the applesauce mixture. Stir all together until evenly mixed.
  • Add the applesauce/banana mixture into the flour and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Note: If using smaller loaf pans be sure to reduce baking time. Watch for browning and then start checking with a toothpick. You may find that smaller loaf pans work better because in the large loaf pan the center seems to have a hard time getting done before the bottom is too done.

"This was a very heavy dense banana bread. It had great taste and is a good recipe for those who want a recipe using wheat flour. It was difficult to get it done enough in the center without getting the bottom too done. I suggest baking it in two smaller loaves rather than one larger loaf."
