Healthier Oatmeal Banana Bread



Makes 2 Loaves

3/4 cup of Unsweetened Applesauce
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
4 Eggs
2 2/3 Cup of AP Flour (I mix about 60-40 Regular to Whole Wheat)
1 1/3 cup of Regular Rolled Oats
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup of Low-Fat Buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 Large ripe bananas, mashed.


Heat oven to 325' and grease and flour 2 loaf pans. In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together applesauce, sugar and eggs. Beat well. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Add flour mixture alternately with milk and oatmeal to applesauce mixture. Add vanilla and bananas. Sometimes, when I want to make it a little less healthy, I add about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Bake in loaf pans for 60-75 minutes.  Cool.
