A moist, nutty loaf perfect for a rainy Saturday morning or a grab n’ go breakfast!
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (you could also substitute applesauce here!)
  • 3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt (you could also use plain)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecan pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (375 for muffins). Grease the bottom and sides of a loaf pan or muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until fluffy. Stir in the oil (or applesauce). Add mashed bananas, yogurt, and vanilla.
  3. Fold in dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in nuts.
  4. Pour into prepared loaf pan or muffin tin and bake, 45 minutes to 1 hour (for bread) or 15-20 minutes (for muffins), or until a toothpick comes out cleanly and you get that lovely little crack on the top! πŸ™‚
