I found this recipe on Pinterest that came from Food.com. It is the BEST banana bread I have had. ENJOY!!
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 large ripe bananas
1/2 cup applesauce
4 tablespoons butter or 4 tablespoons margarine, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the first five (dry) ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, mash the bananas well.
Stir the butter or margarine, vanilla extract and applesauce into the bananas.
Add the banana mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients.
Mix gently by hand, just enough to form a thick, clumpy batter. If the mixture seems too dry, add more mashed banana or applesauce to adjust the consistency.
Fold in chocolate chips and/or walnuts, if using.
Pour batter into greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until the bread is a deep golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
