  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Generously coat a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and walnuts.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, applesauce and mashed bananas with a whisk or a fork. Whisk in sweetener and vanilla. Gently add all of the dry ingredients, and using a spatula, stir just until combined, being careful not to over mix (batter will still be lumpy).
  4. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle.
  5. Remove from pan and let cool. Serve banana bread slices warm. Enjoy!


  • The riper the bananas, the better! Ripe bananas add natural sweetness and moisture.
  • To ripen bananas quickly, place them in a paper bag with an apple for a day. To ripen them immediately, place unpeeled bananas on a baking sheet at 300º F for 15 – 20 minutes, until the banana skins turn black all over.
  • Only stir the batter just until the dry ingredients are moistened. This will help ensure a tender banana bread as opposed to a tough one.
  • Toast walnuts before adding to bread for a deeper flavor.
  • Banana bread should be stored in an air-tight container, and will keep for 2-3 days.
