Ingredients

  • 3 large bananas very ripe, peeled
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 325 F degrees. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Set aside. 
  • Add the ripe bananas to a medium size bowl and mash them using a fork or a potato masher. Add the vegetable oil, yogurt, eggs, vanilla extract and quickly whisk everything together.
  • Whisk in the sugars then add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and whisk until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and place in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

Variations: Stir in about 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips for a chocolate chip banana bread. For a healthier version, use applesauce instead of vegetable oil. 
 
Storing: Wrap banana bread in plastic wrap while still a bit slightly warm, but not hot. This will keep it from drying out overnight.
