Yummy, HEALTHY Banana Bread

I know, it's been forever since I've posted here. The truth is, I just don't think in terms of blogging much anymore, because of course, I've continued to cook!   But in any case, here I am, posting a recipe that I've adapted from The Wishful Chef.  I omitted the dates that were called for, as I had none, and substituted some vanilla nonfat yogurt. For the topping, I replaced the optional brown sugar with organic sugar.  It came out simply delicious.


The Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats 
  • 1/2 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted 
  • 4-6 ripe bananas 
  • 1/4 cup pecans or chocolate chips (optional) (I used neither)
  • Crumb Topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons butter, (I melted it)
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon organic sugar (optional)
 The Process:

Combine the crumb topping ingredients and set aside.  Spray or butter the bottom of your loaf pan and preheat your oven to 350 (F).

Start by having a willing pair of hands squish your bananas up while you do things like measure the flour, baking soda, and other dry ingredients together into a bowl.   You blend in your banana, eggs, butter, yogurt and once it's well combined, you can blend it into the dry ingredients. Just pour into the loaf pan, sprinkle that topping you made earlier and set aside, and bake for 1 hour.  It really is a very easy recipe, and SOOOOO good!  Of course, being healthy doesn't hurt either! :)
