I love to have some kind of quick bread in the cupboard during the week. They are great for healthy snacks and easy to take along to the store for the girls. So I usually have banana, zucchini, or pumpkin, but this week I wanted to try something new! It is a twist on banana bread, you will love it! Moist and soft, with a little chocolate for a treat!
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup sugar
3 egg whites
1 cup mashed banana (3 medium)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan.
2. Beat applesauce and sugar in bowl until combined. Beat in egg whites until light and fluffy. Beat in bananas and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in flour, baking soda and powder, salt until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into pan.
3. Bake 60-70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely about 1 hour.
* Tightly wrap in plastic wrap to keep fresh.
