Calories (1 Piece): 169


Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups mashed banana (about 3-4 bananas)
  • ⅓ cup plain greek yogurt
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1½ cups white whole-wheat flour
  • ¼ cup flaxseed meal
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Method:

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium to large mixing bowl mix together banana, greek yogurt, butter, and eggs.
  3. Add in the sugars and mix until blended.
  4. On top of the wet ingredients place the flour, flaxseed meal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until all of the ingredients are combined.
  5. Pour into a standard loaf pan, sprayed with cooking spray, and bake for 55 minutes or until the center is cooked. You can check this with a toothpick or sharp knife. If no batter sticks to the toothpick then the bread is done.
  6. Let the bread cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let it finish cooling on a baking rack.
  7. Cut into 16 pieces and serve.

Make-ahead instructions
This bread can be made completely ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator all week or in the freezer up to 3 months. I recommend wrapping in plastic wrap or placing into a freezer bag.
