I make banana bread alot...seriously all the time. We just can't get enough of this quick bread. It's great for breakfast, afternoon snack, and dessert.This is a healthier version that uses apple sauce, just a little bit of butter, and a combination of white and whole wheat flour. These lovely mini loaves were moist, chocolaty, and delicious!
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 T unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray mini loaf pan (8 cavity) with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large stand mixer bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs and beat until well combined. Mix in the apple sauce, vanilla and mashed bananas until thick.
Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Add the mini chocolate chips and mix to incorporate.
Pour the batter into the mini loaf pan, filling each about 2/3 of the way (makes 8 mini loaves). Bake for 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
