  • 1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon vanilla 4 very ripe bananas

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs

Summary

After the overindulgences of the holiday season, I have tailored-made a banana bread recipe to make it healthier and in an effort to fit into my pants!The banana bread is delicious and light and always satisfies the kids cravings for a sweet after dinner. I use Greek yogurt, not only is it tasty but it’s low in carbohydrates and fat and high in protein.

Instructions

  1. 1preheat oven to 350
  2. 2Sift the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  3. 3In an electric mixer, with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time.
  4. 4Add dry ingredients and with a spoon or silicone spatula scrape the sides of the bowl to incorporate. Add yogurt and vanilla then bananas – I just add them whole and let the paddle of the mixer chuck them up; stir well.
  5. 5Pour into a well buttered 9×5 × 3-inch loaf pan or several smaller pans
  6. 6Bake 1 hour for the large loaf and 40 minutes for the small loafs and 25 -30 minutes for the muffins.
