Best Ever No Fat Banana Bread

What you need: 

2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup sugar
2 egg substitutes (
1/4 cup water or nondairy milk
1 2/3 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
cinnamon, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a 9" square pan with non-stick cooking spray. If using a standard loaf pan, increase heat to 350 degrees F.In a large mixing bowl, mix together first 5 ingredients (through water) until well incorporated.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Dump flour mixture into the wet and stir just until uniformly moist. Do not overmix! Depending on the type of flour you use, you may need to add a little extra water or milk to reach the right consistency. The dough should be somewhere in between pancake batter and cookie dough.
3. Dump into prepared pan and give it a couple shakes to distribute the batter. Place on the middle oven rack and bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes. (If using a standard loaf pan, increase baking time.)
4. Check the bread at around 30 minutes. It is done when just starting to brown around the edges and still a little moist looking in the middle. Allow to cool 10 minutes before cutting into squares or slices.
Cover and hide the bread so no one else eats it!

Excellent! I made muffins. Baked them for about 24 minutes on 325. I added chopped walnuts. My non-vegan friends thought they were great! 


I baked it for a long time and it never got all the way done in the middle.  But it was very good, I just ate around that part!  I might try making it in muffin pans like the other person did.  I love that is has no oil or butter in it and still taste great


I only had 1 banana, so I only made 1/2 a batch, &  made 6 muffins instead of bread.  These were SO moist and delicious.  The 2nd time I made them, I used strawberry applesauce, and used grated apple for some of the applesauce.  Since the applesauce was sweetened, I only added half the sugar.  The batter took on a pink tinge, but when cooked, looked the same as the other batch.  I think I liked it better with a little grated apple in it.  Either way, these were great, and quick and easy to make.  For my egg substitute, I used 1 TBSP ground flax to 2 1/2 TBSP water for each egg.  Worked great!!
