  • Beat brown sugar and oil together in a large bowl until well-blended. Add eggs, applesauce, and vanilla extract; mix well to combine. Stir in mashed bananas. Add whole wheat flour and baking soda; stir until incorporated. Fold walnuts into the batter.

  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cover loaf with a clean towel and cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Note:

Bake at 275 to 300 degrees F (135 to 150 degrees C) if you have a convection oven.

8.7.16 I'm typically not crazy about banana bread made with whole wheat flour, but this recipe turned out fairly well. Baked in 3 mini loaf pans for 35 minutes, it's plenty moist, light in texture, flavorful, and certainly breaks down better nutritionally than many banana bread recipes. It's a compromise for me, but it's one I can make. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

Delicious, wholesome, and easy. I switched the brown sugar to coconut sugar and added a few dates. Also used sprouted whole wheat flour. Nutritious and delicious! Read More

I needed a whole wheat recipe for banana bread and this was perfect! It’s nice and moist. The only change I made was to use coconut oil instead of olive oil. My kids loved it too and didn’t even care that it was whole what flour (and trust me, they ALWAYS care). Read More

I substituted whole milk plain yogurt for the applesauce. More probiotic and less sugar. I also used Swerve brown sugar Read More
