Nutritional Facts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, wheat bran, sugar, ground flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon batter into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. pan. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
Tip: The bananas must be very, very ripe (sweet!) for this banana bread as there’s very little added sugar. Freeze your bananas as they become over ripe and you will always be ready to throw together a banana loaf!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2012

I've made this before using the magazine but on this online recipe not sure what temperature. The bread is delicious and I've misplaced the magazine so i've looked it up online but can't remember what temp was used

Good recipe. Nice flavour. Next time I make this I would split it into two loaf pans as it took about 1-1/2 hours to bake.

This bread was delicious! I used light & fit vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt since thats all I had on hand. My 2 boys loved it! It had just enough sweet flavor, but still tasted healthy. I prefer it over our regular banana bread recipe! Very good!

In addition to the strawberry yogurt, I also used Kroger brand oat bran instead of the wheat bran that I couldn't find.

MY REVIEW

This bread was yummy! I accidentally bought the strawberry Greek yogurt (Yoplait Greek style), but it made it a little sweeter (though I couldn't really taste the strawberry flavor). I also found the bread was not done after 50 minutes, so I covered it with foil and baked it probably 15 more minutes. I'll probably bake it less next time, but I'm keeping the strawberry yogurt. Enjoyed it!
