Whole Wheat WW Banana Bread

This is an adaptation of the Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread from SkinnyTaste. I didn't have any strawberries, so I just kept on with the banana bread :) It ended up being completely fine and tasted great! One loaf makes 16 servings for 2 pts+ a piece!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tb. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar (not packed)*
3 very ripe bananas
2 Tb. applesauce
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large egg whites

*When putting sugar into measuring cup, use a fork to run through the sugar to fluff it up and make it easier to scoop.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Mix flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. Put sugar and butter in mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for several minutes. Add in bananas, vanilla, applesauce, and egg whites. Mix for several more minutes until combined. Add in the flour mixture and mix on a low speed until just combined.

Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake in oven for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean!
