Prep time20 minutes
Cooking time40 minutes
Total time1 hour

Ingredients

1 t
baking soda
1⁄2 c
granulated sugar (or equivalent non-liquid sweetener of choice)
1⁄4 c
non-dairy milk (can use soy, almond, or rice, etc)
1⁄2 c
applesauce
1 t
white vinegar
3  
bananas, very ripe (mash completely so there are no large pieces)
1 t
vanilla extract

Instructions

 Preheat oven to 350; spray 9x5" loaf pan with cooking oil spray or line pan with parchment paper

Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar) together, set aside.   Put the non-dairy milk, applesauce, vinegar, mashed bananas and vanilla in a large bowl and mix well. Slowly blend your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  If batter is too stiff add more non-dairy milk. 

Don’t over beat.  Scrape batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 40 minutes. Allow bread to cool completely before slicing.

 

Notes

I don't use salt but many recipes call for 1 teaspoon
