Banana Bread

2 C. whole wheat flour

1 tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

½ C. sugar free applesauce

¾ C. honey

2 eggs, beaten

3 mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake in pre-heated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack.
