  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cups and 1/2 mashed ripe bananas I used 2 large
  • 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt I used vanilla zero fat
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. In electric mixing bowl fitted with paddle attachment, cream sugars and butter (approximately one minute).
  4. To this mixture, add eggs, one at a time, completely combining after each one.
  5. Next, add bananas, yogurt and vanilla, beating until blended.
  6. Add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Do not over beat.
  7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan (8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches - standard loaf pan).
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 60 minutes. I would start checking at 50 minutes, as all oven temperatures vary. It is done when toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean.
  9. Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack until completely cool.
  11. Slice and serve.
