This recipe happened on a “I feel like baking something” kind of Sunday morning.
I had some extra bananas that were starting to get a little gross and didn’t have anything for breakfast.
Perfect solution: banana bread.
First time banana bread baker, right here.
I started dumping everything into the bowls and mixing it all together until I opened the fridge and realized – SHIT – no eggs.
I think Tuna was craving banana bread just as much as I was, because he saved the day and went to grab some eggs for me. 🙂
This recipe was adapted from HERE.
You will need: bread loaf pan
- 4 overripe bananas
- ¼ cup canola oil
- ¼ cup applesauce
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
Mix together mashed bananas, applesauce, eggs, vanilla, oil, sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
Pour one bowl into the other and stir.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 60 to 70 minutes.
Cool for a few minutes before removing bread from pan.
Thanks as always to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!

Yummm banana bread is one of my favorite things ever!
May be one of my favs now too!
Mmmm…your banana bread looks incredible! (Way to go first-time-banana-bread-baker!) I love baking in the fall! 🙂
Aww, thanks! 🙂 I know, for some reason bread baking seems very fall-like.
Love your blog! I am trying to eat mostly clean myself and change my ways. I have a question though. Is canola oil and brown sugar “clean”??? I have no idea!
Thanks, Jenny! That is a great question – I think in general most of the “clean” recipes definitely avoid sugar and don’t have lots of oil. Some “clean” substitutions for recipes are natural substitutions, like applesauce for oil or honey for sugar. Here’s a good blog post about it: http://www.thegraciouspantry.com/clean-eating-recipe-substitutions/
I totally feel your pain on running out of eggs at the last minute! I ended up making a “flax” egg for my zucchini muffins the other day since I had no eggs on hand. Worked like a dream! Your bread looks delicious 🙂 I always end up adding cinnamon and nutmeg too!
That is awesome – I think I’ve done that once before for a recipe, but I completely forgot about it. Totally going to remember this next time. And I will def have to try adding those too!
You can never go wrong with banana bread!
Ah divine. I’m going to go out purchase bananas tomorrow.
Niiice. They are a good cheap fruit, too!
