Canyon Ranch Banana Bread

4 Comments 13 April 2010

I ate this banana bread by a friend’s house and loved it!. I have made it so many times since and always get rave reviews.  You can try making them in cupcakes instead of a loaf.

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

Whole Wheat and Honey Breakfast Banana Loaf Recipe:

  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup brown rice syrup (or 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large bananas, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


1) Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ or 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.

2) In a large bowl, beat together the applesauce and  brown rice syrup until smooth. Add the vanilla, baking soda, salt, and bananas, beating until well combined. The mixture will be fairly smooth, with some scattered small chunks of banana.

3) Beat in the honey and eggs.

4) Add the flour, then the walnuts, stirring until smooth.

5) Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Let it rest at room temperature for 10 minutes.

6) Bake the bread for 50 minutes, then gently lay a piece of aluminum foil across the top, to prevent over-browning. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, then remove the bread from the oven; a long toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center should come out clean.

*All ovens vary in temperatures so please use your discretion with baking times!

7) Allow the loaf to cool for 10 minutes; then remove it from the pan, and set it on a rack to cool completely.

Yield: 1 loaf, 16 to 18 servings.
