Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great day so far icon smile Moist and Healthy Banana Bread

Since my “diagnosis”, I’ve been busy in the kitchen testing my favorite recipes without using eggs.  One of these recipes is my favorite banana bread.  I have been trying to create the perfect recipe for banana bread for the past few years!  And I had finally made one, but of course, it had eggs icon sad Moist and Healthy Banana Bread

However, when I looked up egg substitutes online, I found that you can use mashed fruit.  Mashed banana and applesauce seem to be the popular ones.  Since this recipe already uses banana, I thought I would also add some applesauce.  And….it turned out perfect!  Moist, healthy, and totally yummy, this banana bread is my night time indulgence snack Every. Single. Night.
