Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Do you like how my natural reaction is to spread cream cheese all over the banana bread that has almost no fat?  I do see the irony. 

The bread really is delicious without any toppings though.  It's very moist and has a great banana flavor.  It's quick to put together, and it smells great coming out of the oven.  I'm sure it would be great as muffins, too. 

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I used whole wheat flour)
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs whites (or 1 egg)
1 cup banana, mashed (2 large bananas)
1/4 cup applesauce

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly grease and 8"x4" loaf pan.  In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.  Add egg whites, bananas, and applesauce; stir until just combined.  Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake in preheated oven 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.  Turn out onto wire rack and cool before slicing.
