Banana Bread {no oil}

I always make a loaf of banana bread or banana muffins when I have overripe bananas hanging around.
I tend to stick to the same recipe time after time (which I need to post sometime)  but after cruising around Pinterest I am finding all kind of different banana bread recipes that I must try. One popular one that I keep seeing is from 8weekstoabetteryourecipes, which uses applesauce instead of oil and honey instead of brown sugar. So I gave it a whirl!
Now I love banana bread with that delicious brown sugar crumble. Obviously I have not developed a non-sugary pallet...so I will admit that I added some brown sugar to the slices that I ate. *sigh* the horror I know! It defeated the purpose of it being a healthy recipe. But I tried a slice...or two...without the brown sugar and it just wasn't doing it for me. But it is a solid recipe that can be enjoyed without it. My husband didn't mind one bit without it.
The only other change I had was that her recipe used whole wheat flour, but I didn't have any on hand, so I used white flour.
