Bomb Banana Bread

My kids ask me to make it this ALL the time.  They have no idea there's no eggs are dairy included in this recipe.  It is plenty sweet, however!  I got the original recipe from Dr. Weil, but I tweaked it to exclude some of the fat and sugar, and include some cinnamon for extra flavor.  The recipe is for a loaf, but it works for muffins as well.  I wanted to call it bomb-a** banana bread, but didn't think that was appropriate.  Enjoy with Smart Balance butter, fruit spread, honey, or plain.  Perfection!  Read more for recipe:

3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup honey
2 T canola oil
2 T natural apple sauce (no sugar added)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional

Heat oven to 350 F.  Lightly oil loaf pan or use 12 baking cups for muffins.  Mash the bananas and mix with wet ingredients.  Stir together dry ingredients, add the nuts.  Blend the two mixtures.  Bake 40 minutes for loaf or 15 minutes for muffins.  Yum yum!
