1/4 c apple sauce
4 medium very ripe bananas
2/3 c rice or soy milk
1/2 t vanilla extract
2 c brown rice flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 c each raisins and chopped walnuts
Place apple sauce and bananas in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mash bananas with a potato masher or fork until just slightly lumpy. Add milk and vanilla extract and stir until well-mixed. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, place brown rice flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until well-mixed. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly with a spoon. Stir in raisins and chopped walnuts until evenly dispersed.
Pour batter into three oiled 4 1/2" x 3" loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 minutes.
I'm pretty sure this would work well as muffins too. That's how I'll make it the next time. For people who don't like things overly sweet, you'll love these. If you're not sure whether you'll like the banana bread without added sweetener, plan to eat it with jam smeared on top--yumm! You can't go wrong! ;)
