With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it is time to think about what we are going to serve for dinner or what we are going to take as a guest to dinner. The hardest thing is to think up a desert for some one who can’t have dairy or sugar. Here is a wonderful treat for such a person that you can give. I made these with sugar and they turned out wonderful. It is very moist and the applesauce gives it an added flavor surprise. I bake them in mini loaf pan and shorten the time to 30 minutes. They could also be baked as muffins.
Applesauce Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas
1 cup sugar or Spenda plus an extra 1/4 cup of applesauce

On low speed gradually add flour mixture until blended. Pour in loaf prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
