  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Peel and add bananas to a large bowl and mash using a fork. Add applesauce, sour cream, eggs, vanilla extract and whisk everything together.
  • Add the sugars and whisk until the sugar is well incorporated into the batter.
  • Add flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and stir using a wooden spoon. Do not over mix, just enough until you don't see the flour anymore.
  • Stir in the nuts.
  • Pour the batter in the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 40 to 50 min or until done.



I used applesauce for a healthier version, but it can be substituted with vegetable oil or butter.
For a dairy free version, replace the sour cream with applesauce.
