High Fiber Banana Bread

I wanted to experiment with Almond Meal Flour today, so I used it in this recipe and it came out so Good! Grease a Loaf pan with 1 Tsp butter (I used KerryGold unsalted) or coconut oil. This is the only oil in this recipe. It is Low fat and very moist. Good luck keeping it in the house while I am around! ;)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and oil a loaf pan  or 2 and double the recipe!

1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Almond Meal Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon +1 tsp for topping
1/4 Tsp Kosher Salt (Optional)
3 Very Ripe Bananas, Mashed
1/2 Cup Applesauce
1/3 Cup Sugar (optional)
1/3 Cup egg whites
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Flax Seed Meal
2/3 cup (uncooked)  Organic Oats
sprinkle of raw honey on top

Sift Flours, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Cinnamon and Salt into a bowl and set aside
Combine The Mashed Bananas, Applesauce, Sugar Egg Whites and Vanilla
Add the Dry Ingredients to the Banana Mixture and combine
Mix in Flax Seed Meal and Oats
Top with 1 Tsp Cinnamon sprinkled on top and a drizzle of raw honey before baking
Bake for 50-60 Minutes
Cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes then take out and put on a wire rack until it is cool enough to devour!
