Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce*
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose or gluten-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine mashed banana, Greek yogurt, applesauce, and honey. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and room temperature eggs.
  • Next add the flour, salt, baking soda, and mix until just combined and there are no remaining streaks of flour. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  • Pour the banana bread batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Immediately place pan onto a wire rack to cool before removing from pan and slicing.
  • Store leftover banana bread slices in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To re-heat, place banana bread in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until desired temperature.

Notes

*You can substitute an equal amount of oil (vegetable, canola, or olive oil) for the applesauce, however it will result in higher calories. As far as flavor goes, both taste delicious!

*To freeze banana bread slices, let cool completely and wrap each slice in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Place inside a freezer safe Ziploc bag and freeze. To thaw, place a slice or slices in the refrigerator to thaw overnight or if eating immediately, microwave for 30 seconds at a time until heated.
