Whether you need a quick breakfast, easy snack, or more options for lunch packs, this easy banana bread is the perfect recipe to add to your repertoire. Applesauce and mashed bananas keep it moist sans butter and oil, and most of the ingredients (like cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda) can probably be found in your pantry.

Banana Bread With Applesauce

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes


1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 ½ cups Thrive Market Sprouted White Wheat Flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with 1 tablespoon butter.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Add eggs, mashed bananas, and applesauce; stir just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
