"Tired of throwing out old bananas? This recipe is a moist, flavorful, and low-fat way to save those bananas and keep your kids coming back for more. No white sugar here. Good old maple syrup, non-fat Greek yogurt, and applesauce make great alternatives to the usual banana bread recipe!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Coat an 11x7-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Whisk together applesauce and maple syrup in a large bowl. Add eggs and whisk until well blended. Add bananas, yogurt, and milk; mix until combined but still lumpy. Whisk in vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Fold flour mixture slowly into banana mixture with a large wooden spoon until fully combined. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Slice and serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • White whole wheat flour may be substituted for white flour, if desired. Honey can be used in place of maple syrup, and vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt can be used instead of plain.
  • Optional mix-ins are nuts, raisins, or dried fruit: just add them when you fold in the dry ingredients.
