Vegan fruit bread

I adapted a low-fat non-vegan banana bread recipe which I can no longer find to create this.

Anyway, this recipe is very flexible in terms of what ingredients you use, which is why I like it.

Core ingredients:
-1 cup applesauce (non-sweetened)
-3/4 cup sugar (white or brown; you can easily use less)
-2 mushed bananas
-2.5 cups whole wheat flour (use half wheat and half white, or all white if you want)
-2 teaspoons baking soda
-0.5 teaspoons salt
-Optional: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Extras (use all, some, or none)
-1/3 cup wheat germ
-1/2 cup flax seeds
-1 large apple, diced (I didn't bother to peel it)
-1 cup walnuts
-1/2 cup chopped dried figs

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Combine applesauce and sugar.
3. Add bananas, flour, salt, and baking soda and stir very well to mix (I don't bother using an electric mixer). Add oil.
4. Stir in the extras
5. Pour into loaf pan (the pan will be very full, so you can split it into two pans, or a pan and some muffin cups).
6. Bake 1 hr - 1 hr 15 min, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
