  • Summary

    We've made a lot of different banana bread recipes over the years, but this one has become our absolute favorite because we've managed to make it a little healthier without compromising flavor and texture. We've cut back on the sugar, reduced the fat and added some whole wheat flour, yet you'd never know it wasn't your grandmother's original recipe.

    Ingredients

    • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped (optional)
    • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
