My Favorite Banana Bread
I’ve adapted this recipe from Cooking Light. I think it’s the best banana bread recipe out there.
2 cups oat flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar (Splenda granular and Truvia work well too)
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (2% or 0%)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
3. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Spoon batter into a bread loaf pan (or muffin pan) coated with cooking spray.
4. Bake at 350° for 1 hour (for bread), or 20 minutes (for muffins), or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
