Banana Brad using apple sauce and brown sugar and flax seed for fiber, adapted from http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/banana_bread/. It is not as delicious as the original (when I made the original it had chocolate chips... Yum) but it still has that great banana bread texture, tastes good, and made my house smell nice. Also, it might have been the pan, but I think it cooked about 10 minutes faster than the hour it usually took, so be aware.
