Carob Chip Banana Bread

A clean eating version of a yummy classic.  I am a fan of anything ‘banana and chocolate chip’, especially cookies that my Nanny always made (and I am still addicted to).  This recipe was in the July 2011 Clean Eating Magazine!

The Ingredients:

  • 1.5 c whole wheat flour
  • 1.25 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed (ran out, so I used Wheat Germ)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
  • 2 egg whites
  • 0.25 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 0.5 cup raw honey
  • 0.25 cup flax seed oil (I used EVOO)
  • 1/3c chopped dark chocolate (I used carob chips)
  • I added 1 tsp of nutmeg

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, flaxseed, salt and nutmeg.

2.  In a large bowl, beat bananas until smooth (I just mashed with a fork and used a whisk).  Add egg whites, and mix.  Gradually add in apple sauce, honey, and oil
