Guilt-free Banana Bread

We always have bananas in our house. They're so yummy on cereal, in pancakes, and a great snack. But when it's really warm and humid, those bananas sure ripen quickly! So if I have a few bananas going bad I either throw them in the freezer to use later on, or I go ahead and make this delicious bread. We love it!!

Guilt-free Banana Bread
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1-1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 egg whites
1 cup bananas, mashed (about 3 bananas)
1/4 cup applesauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan. (I use a glass pan - it tends to cook the bread a little more evenly - but whatever you have will work!).
2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add the egg whites, applesauce and mashed bananas. Stir all of the ingredients just until it's combined, do not stir it too much or for too long. Pour the batter into your prepared pan.
3. Bake for 42-47  minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Turn onto a wire rack and allow to cool before slicing.
