Skinny Banana Bread

Sharing is caring!

Last week I had this craving for banana bread, it just over powered me. If you’ve been following my blog for some time you would know much I like to work out and eat clean. I decided to toy around with the traditional banana bread recipe and make it more “healthy“.

I substituted whole eggs with egg whites, cinnamon applesauce for sugar, and more. I don’t know about you but I love Starbucks’ banana bread but one slice of bread had 22g of fat, 52g of carbs, and 30g of sugar! Yikes!

I plan on making other variations of this in the future! I’m thinking pumpkin (because I’m basic), cranberry, or some chocolate chip banana bread recipe!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe!
