Better then Sliced Bread Banana Loaf

Found this amazing banana bread recipe from The Baking Bird (original recipe from Veganomicon) and made a loaf as a pre-camping/hiking/grueling rock climbing treat for me and Mike - our all-time favourite bread!

I tweaked it of course to have less sugar and more natural sweetness ...

Banana Maple Bread 
(from Veganomicon via The Baking Bird)

Makes one loaf

2 large or 3 small very ripe bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp molasses
1 cup gluten-free flour mix
1 cup spelt flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
  3. Puree bananas until smooth. Add the maple syrup, applesauce, oil, and molasses, and whisk briskly to incorporate.
  4. Sift in the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Use a wooden spoon to mix until all the wet and dry ingredients are combined well.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack or cutting board.
