Healthy Banana Bread (Dairy Free)

Hi friends!

It’s usually around 2 p.m. that my post-lunch hunger pangs kick in and I like to have a satisfying snack while I’m at work.  Lately I’ve been experimenting a lot with muffins and loafs but this week I wanted to make more of a traditional banana bread that wasn’t full of sugar and butter.  This recipe is so moist and healthy that no one will even know it doesn’t have sugar!

I love experimenting and making healthy versions of traditional things we all enjoyed growing up.  Like come on, who didn’t eat their mom’s banana bread growing up? Although I would only eat it if it had lots of chocolate chips.  My mom still laughs at how much of a choc-holic I am.  It makes everything better.  The mix of the apple sauce and the banana makes this recipe light and not dense.  I hope you’ll try it out and let me know what you think.  And again, feel free to not include things such as walnuts or even chocolate, if it’s not your favourite.

I know it’s tough, but make sure to wait until the loaf cools before cutting into slices.  I’ve made that mistake before 😉 ! I used a 9-inch loaf pan (use one like this) but you could also make this into muffins but adjust baking time to 20 minutes and then check them periodically. Click here to pin this recipe for future reference!

A different time I made the loaf with mini chocolate chips 🙂
