First, preheat your oven to 350 and grease a bread pan. The original post called for a 8" x 4" pan but I only had a 9" x 5" pan and it worked fine.
Next, grab the following 8 ingredients:
Dry ingredients -
1 1/2 C of flour
3/4 C of white sugar
1 1/4 t of baking powder
1/2 t of baking soda
1/2 t of ground cinnamon
Wet ingredients -
1/4 c of applesauce (I used cinnamon applesauce because I can't have enough cinnamon!)
1 C of smashed bananas (I found this equaled to about 2 bananas)
2 egg whites
Next, mix all the dry ingredients together and then add the wet ingredients. It's going to look like the cat vomited in your bowl. You have been warned.
Pour the mixture into your bread pan.
Put in the oven for 50-55 minutes. I put mine in for 50 minutes and I knew it was done when I put a toothpick in the bread and it came out clean.
Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into it and tell me what you think. Me personally, it lacked any sort of flavor. Nutmeg, vanilla, almond extract... SOMETHING would have been a nice addition but as it stands, this bread has:
I mean, it's kinda hard to argue with those numbers when it's semi-healthy... but again, it's also like eating cardboard.

EASY-PEASY SCALE (1 super easy - 5 very difficult): 1 out of 5
It's not hard to bring the ingredients in a bowl, then in a pan, then in your mouth but remember, it's "almost no fat" because it's "almost no flavor." Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some bread that needs to be slathered in butter...
