My husband is a pretty strict clean eater and he is not a huge fan of bread, sweet or otherwise. On occasion I can get him to eat Banana Bread if I make it super healthy. I have been working on this recipe for awhile and I think it is pretty fantastic!
3 very ripe bananas, peeled
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 3/4 Organic Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup of chopped Walnuts (I toasted mine first)
1 individual cup of sugar free applesauce (or 1/3 cup melted Coconut Oil)
1/2 cup of Coconut Sugar
1/8 cup of Maple Syrup
Turbinado Sugar for sprinkling on top
Mix the bananas, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, applesauce, eggs, coconut sugar and maple syrup together with a spatula, spoon, whisk or hand mixer. Stir until well incorporated.
Add the flour and the Walnuts and stir till just mixed in.
Pour into a well greased loaf pan.
Sprinkle Turbinado Sugar over the loaf before baking (gives a nice crunch)
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 65 minutes, checking for doneness ever 5 minutes past 50
Let cool and serve
