Fresh Baked Banana Bread – 52 Weeks of Fresh Breakfast Ideas

This entry is part 24 of 32 in the series 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas



It’s been hard to have a real relaxing breakfast the last few weeks. We’ve been vacating our home so the plethora of real estate agents can show it to potential buyers. Hopefully this will end sometime in August. In the meantime my lovely mother has been hosting us and making all kinds of yummy things for breakfast. I know I’m missing my breakfast posts here and there but I wanted to at least post this recipe for you. Nuts in yummy warm sweet bread are so good. This healthier banana bread uses applesauce instead of fat for your moistness. Be sure and adjust the amount of nuts to your liking.

Applesauce/Banana Bread

4 ripe bananas
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of applesauce
2 eggs
1/2 cup walnuts toasted and chopped
2 cups of bread flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, slice the bananas and use a hand blender to mash them (or just squish them up with your potato masher). Add the sugar and blend. Let mixture stand for 15 minutes to meld together. Add applesauce and eggs and mix well. Blend in the remaining ingredients. Pour into the greased loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand again for 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy!


Happy Breakfast Eating!

    1. I like to use applesauce in a few breakfast baked goods recipes. It’s a nice touch and I’m not shy of fat 😉 Let me know if you try the banana bread recipe.
