Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick baking spray or line with nonstick foil; set aside. Place 1 tsp. of the flour in a small bowl and stir in brown sugar; stir in 2 Tbsp. of the walnuts and reserve for topping. In a large bowl combine remaining flour, remaining walnuts, baking powder, baking soda and sugar; set aside. Beat the egg in a medium bowl. Peel the bananas and gently mash into the egg. Stir in the yogurt and applesauce, then fold in the dried fruit. Pour the fruit mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until moistened. Place the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with the reserved topping. Bake in the center of the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf will come out clean when done. Remove from oven and cool before slicing. To store wrap tightly in foil or plastic wrap.
