  • 3-4 very ripe bananas, mashed (I used 3 large bananas to total 1.5 cups mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8.5-inch by 4.5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Place mashed bananas, melted butter, and applesauce in a large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to mix together.
  • Add sugar, egg, and vanilla to banana mixture. Stir until well blended.
  • Sprinkle baking soda and salt over mixture and stir until well blended.
  • Add whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour last, stirring just until combined. Be careful not to over-mix or your bread will be tough.
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 35-55 minutes, or until brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Be careful not to over-bake your loaf, so check it early on. Mine usually only takes about 45 minutes to cook.
  • Cool on a wire rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
