Recipe from Cooking Light

Eggs are omitted in this banana bread recipe and yogurt is added for a healthier version. As one online reviwer claims, "I made this just as written. Absolutely loved it. No eggs, no problem."

Ingredients

  • 3.4 ounces all-purpose flour (about 3/4 cup)
  • 3.6 ounces whole-wheat flour (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. 2. Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours and next 4 ingredients (through baking soda) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine banana and next 4 ingredients (through oil) in a small bowl. Add banana mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
  3. 3. Spoon the batter into a 9 x 5–inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack, and remove from pan. Cool on wire rack.
