Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Low fat doesn't have to mean tasteless!  I've created a low fat, flavor packed, simple banana bread recipe that has a hint of sweetness.

Tip: I feel it's important to use ripe frozen bananas to get the absolute best flavor possible.  As they begin to ripen more than I prefer for eating I store them in the freezer for recipes like this.

3 mashed bananas
1 egg white
3/4 cup agave syrup or honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup pecans

Thoroughly combine all of the wet ingredients.  Stir in cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour.  Last, mix in pecans.  Pour into a greased loaf pan or muffin tins and bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours at 350 degrees.
