Healthier Banana Banana Bread


"This recipe was really yummy to start with but I was looking for something a little healthier so I replaced some butter with non-fat yogurt and I eliminated the salt. It is super moist and tastes great."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Beat butter, yogurt, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding the next. Stir in mashed bananas until well blended. Pour banana mixture to flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Transfer batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.

The bread came out very dense but was moist. For my preference, it was very bland even after I added a little nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. And it took much longer to bake than the recipe says. ...

Very tasty. I made 1/2 the recipe with two medium size bananas, and baked muffins. Only a 6-muffin tin would fit in our little toaster oven so there was some batter left over, but I believe the...

This was really good. After 50 minutes though it was done, I add crushed walnuts and a little extra yogurt. Delicious. I like my banana bread more moist, not sure if it was me or the recipe.

I love this recipe, and have made it many times already! I made a few modifications based off the other reviews in order to make it even healthier. For the 2 cups of flour, I use 1 cup whole w...

Using this recipe I made an even lower calorie version substituting pureed pumkin for the butter/yogurt and an egg substitute for the whole eggs, and then mixed in 1/4 cup of chopped dates. It ...

I just made this last night and my very picky husband said this was the best i ever made. I made a bit of an adjustment with the flour using 1 cup white and 1 cup whole wheat, I added walnuts, a...

A simple, healthy recipe that doesn't require a trip to the co-op for ingredients. i reduced the brown sugar by a 1/4 cup and used cream cheese instead of yogurt. Didn't bother measuring out the...

I'm not much for reviews, but this warrants one. I made this recipe tonight, with a few modifications due to allergies. This recipe ROCKS. Super moist, very tasty & an entire loaf is gone! I m...

Delicious! Added fresh grated nutmeg (love the smell) and cinnamon to taste. Also a cup of toasted walnuts. Will make again. Splendid. Nice chewy texture, not dry and right amount of banana...
