Applesauce banana bread is one of our favorite banana bread recipes because it is so moist, keeps well for several days in a cool spot or refrigerated, and is wonderful with your morning coffee or as a snack with milk anytime.  The recipe can be doubled to make 2 loaves and children love it as well as adults. We love banana bread and make it at least once a week!

Applesauce Banana Bread simple ingredients needed:

All-purpose flour

Baking powder

Baking soda




White granulated sugar



Cooking oil (I use Canola)

You can use sweetened or unsweetened applesauce in this recipe. I used sweetened but either will work fine. You can easily add nuts too. I have made this many times, sometimes I add pecan and sometimes I don’t. This bread is really good and a wonderful way use bananas.

“I just made 2 smaller loaves, will freeze 1. I added chopped walnuts to the batter. Used regular applesauce as that’s what I had on hand. Love your recipes!”
