Soul Food Saturday

What is it about banana bread that makes us think, something healthy? Is it all the times we have heard the health benefits of bananas; or just one more reason to have an extra slice without any of the guilt? I don’t really need many; I love banana bread any way I can get it. So here is one more recipe to add to your collection, and we are calling it “healthy” because the oil has been replaced in this recipe. But the flavor hasn’t been altered one bit, promise! Grab a cup of coffee, and a friend. This one is best when shared with ones we hold dear.

No-Oil Banana Bread
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. half and half
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 c. mashed bananas
1 c. sugar
 1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped walnuts, optional

 Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray one 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray coating. Set aside. In a medium bowl add eggs, half and half, apple sauce, and bananas. Mix until combined. Sift together sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to banana mixture a third at a time, stirring to combine. With last addition add in walnuts. Stir to combine, completely. Pour into prepared pan and bake 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
