This recipe was really yummy to start with but I was looking for something a little healthier so I replaced some butter with non-fat yogurt and I eliminated the salt. It is super moist and tastes great.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Beat butter, yogurt, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into butter mixture before adding the next. Stir in mashed bananas until well blended. Pour banana mixture to flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Transfer batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I altered the recipe after reading other reviews and it came out even healthier and still very yummy. I did half all purpose and half wheat flour. Instead of butter I used equal parts homemade apple sauce allrecipes.com/recipe/sarahs-applesauce/ (I omitted the sugar in the apple sauce recipe) I used 1/8 cup plain Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of 3/4 cup brown sugar. I only had 3 bananas which turned out to be 1 1/4 cup after mashing. I meant to add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla but forgot until just now and I threw in two palmfuls of craisins. I baked it for 55 minutes in a loaf pan and wish I had taken it out at 50 when I thought it was done. It was a touch over done but I will be making this again when I buy more bananas than we care to eat.

Very tasty. I made 1/2 the recipe with two medium size bananas, and baked muffins. Only a 6-muffin tin would fit in our little toaster oven so there was some batter left over, but I believe the 1/2 recipe would have made 8 regular size muffins.

This was really good. After 50 minutes though it was done, I add crushed walnuts and a little extra yogurt. Delicious. I like my banana bread more moist, not sure if it was me or the recipe.
