1 8X5 loaf pan
Whisk or fork
1 ¾ cup of flour
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
½ teaspoon of baking soda
2 large eggs
1 ¼ teaspoon of baking powder
1/3 cup of unsweetened applause
3 brown bananas
½ cup of chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat Your Oven to 350 Degrees.
Step 2: Mash the Brown Bananas in a Bowl.
A fork also will work for mashing the bananas.
Step 3: In Another Large Bowl, Cream Together the Applesauce and the Sugar.
Cream the applesauce and sugar together until it's well combined and has turned a light-yellow color.
Step 4: In the Same Bowl With the Applesauce and Sugar, Whisk in the Two Eggs One at a Time.
Crack the eggs one at a time into the applesauce and sugar mixture, and stir until both eggs are mixed in.
Step 5: Add the Mashed Bananas to the Egg/sugar/applesauce Mixture.
Combine the mashed bananas with the rest of the mixture.
Step 6: In Another Bowl Stir Together the Flour, Baking Soda, and Baking Powder.
Just stir these ingredients together until they are combined.
Step 7: Combine the Two Bowls and Stir Until Just Combined.
Using a fork or other utensil to stir, combine the two mixtures until there are no dry spots left.
Step 8: Next, Fold in the Chocolate Chips.
This step is optional if you would rather not add chocolate chips.
Step 9: Prepare Your Loaf Pan by Spraying It With Non-stick Spray.
I use Spam non-stick spray, but any type of non-stick spray will work.
Step 10: Dump the Batter Into the Pan.
I suggest using a spatula to get all the batter from the bowl.
Step 11: Bake in the Oven for 55 Minutes or Until the Top Is Brown.
CAUTION: It will be hot!
You can insert a toothpick in the middle of the loaf, and if it comes out clean then it is done.
Step 12: Let Cool and Enjoy!
Step 13: TIPS!
-To get bananas to brown faster, put them in the freezer or fridge.
-Use mini chocolate chips if making smaller loaves.
