Banana Bread with Honey and Applesauce Instead of Sugar and Oil

Want to make someone’s day? Bake them some banana bread! Just yesterday, I said, “I’m going to bake some banana bread,” and watched a full-grown man’s eyes light up like a kid’s on Christmas morning.

Banana bread is one of those classic, all-American comfort food recipes that fills the whole house with warmth and makes everything better. Banana bread is magic.

What makes this banana bread healthy?

This banana bread recipe is made with 100 percent whole wheat flour, unlike traditional banana bread recipes that call for refined flour and lots of processed sugar.
This banana bread is naturally sweetened with honey or maple syrup, which offer some trace nutrients that white sugar does not.
Lastly, this recipe calls for a reasonable amount of good-for-you oil rather than whole sticks of butter (choose from coconut oil, olive oil, or vegetable oil).

Banana Bread Variations & Tips

Now that I’ve finally perfected this basic banana bread, feel free to change up this recipe and make it your own. Toss some chopped pecans or walnuts into the batter! The same goes for chocolate chips. You could also add raisins, chopped dried fruit, or slices of bananas.

If you prefer spelled flour, I’ve heard that works well in place of the whole wheat. You can make muffins, too.

Following a special diet? With a couple of minor tweaks, you can make this bread vegan (so dairy-free and egg-free, too) or gluten-free. Check the recipe notes for details.
