If you want a break from the traditionally sweet banana breadthis is the bread for you. Have no fear, though: even though this bread leaves out the sugar and oil, it packs in plenty of sweetness thanks to the overly-ripe bananas and a touch of cinnamon.

*Note: For added decoration, slice half of a less-ripe banana and distribute evenly over the top of the uncooked loaf before baking.

  • 1 1/2  Cup  well packed, mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2  Cup  apple sauce
  • 1/4  Cup  milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a beater until fluffy. Mash the ripe bananas and add them to the eggs.

Sugar Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Sugar Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
