Keeping this in view, can mashed banana replace applesauce?

Replace one banana with 1/2 cup of applesauce, but don't use more than 1 cup of applesauce because the mixture will be too wet. Mashed cooked sweet potato works as a banana substitute in baked oatmeal recipes, and good substitutes for bananas in smoothies are canned pumpkin, mango, avocado, and frozen yogurt.

Also, can you substitute applesauce for bananas in banana bread? You can replace banana puree with applesauce without having to worry about adding or cutting out ingredients such as sugar or fat. The banana flavor won't be quite as strong when using some applesauce, but you won't have any strong flavors from the applesauce affecting your banana bread.

What is applesauce used for in baking?

Besides being a nutritious and filling snack, applesauce is a great fat-replacer in many baked goods. Baking with applesauce instead of butter or oil adds fiber and reduces calories in cakes, muffins, and breads. And, because of its water content, applesauce will also keep your baked goods moist and fresh longer.
