Ingredients

Dry

  • 1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Wet

  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (1 cup mashed)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Instructions

  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a standard bread pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Next, place dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mash 3 medium ripe bananas with a fork until they’re mostly pureed. You should get about a cup of mashed banana. Then crack in eggs and whisk to combine. Add maple syrup, Greek yogurt, vanilla, and almond milk and whisk again.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet and mix with a wooden spoon. Finally, add melted coconut oil and mix one final time.
  5. Transfer batter into the bread pan and then bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with a tented piece of tin foil. Then, bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let cool for 10-15 minutes and then remove from pan to finish cooling on a cooling rack.

Tips & Notes

Almond milk: option to add a little bit more almond milk depending on how thick your batter is.
