This is the bomb proof banana bread recipe perfect for muffins or bread-bakes up perfect every time!
Avoid using any sort of mixer for this bread because it gets gummy-use a wooden spoon and just stir until all ingredients are mixed.
* gluten free variation included
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
3-4 ripe bananas
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour * gluten free, substitute 2 cups GF all purpose flour plus 1tsp xanthum gum
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas well. Add the sugar, applesauce, oil and molasses and mix well.
Stir in the flour, baking soda, spices and salt using a wooden spoon.
Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake for 40-50 min until lightly browned and a knife inserted comes out clean. If making muffins, bake for 18-20 minutes.
Add chocolate chips to batter for an added treat. Enjoy!
