Low Fat Banana Bread

With Tropical Storm Isaac in town we were stuck in the house for most of the weekend with heavy rain and wind. Hope everyone else is safe and sound and not as bored as we are. What better to do than some baking to keep busy AND use up the brown bananas. I like that the recipe used applesauce instead of butter and it kept the bread nice and moist. Now I spoiled the low-fat and added chocolate chips but you could use the recommended chopped walnuts for a crunch. This made a great breakfast and snack during the day, assuming we don't devour it before then.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (3-5 bananas)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional) I used chocolate chips

In a medium bowl combine eggs, mashed banana, sugar, and applesauce. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.

Pour batter into greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes for one 9x5x3 pan or bake 40-45 minutes for two 7 1/2x 3 1/2x 2 inch pans.
