So moist and flavorful, this bread is made light by replacing butter with lots of bananas, pumpkin and apple sauce.
- 2-1/2 cups white whole wheat or all-purpose gluten-free flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp butter (softened)
- 1 cup light brown sugar (not packed)
- 4 large egg whites
- 1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/4 cup 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 oz 3/4 cup chopped pecans
- baking spray
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease two 8x5 inch loaf pans with baking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and salt with a wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add egg whites, pumpkin, bananas, apple sauce and vanilla, and beat at medium speed until thick. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
Add flour mixture and pecans, then blend at low speed until combined. Do not over mix.
Pour batter into loaf pans and bake on the center rack for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the pan cool at least 20 minutes, bread should be room temperature before slicing.
