Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 heaping cup mashed ripe banana (about 2-3 bananas)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 8x4 or 9x5 loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine mashed banana, honey, greek yogurt, olive oil, almond milk, and vanilla and beat on low until smooth in consistency. Add in the egg and egg white and beat again until well combined, about 1 minute. 

  4. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and combine until moist -- It's important to not over mix! Next gently fold the chocolate chips into the batter.

  5. Spoon all of the batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until a tester inserted into middle of the bread comes out clean. The length of time will vary based on which loaf pan you use, so I suggest checking the bread at 45 minutes. Also, don't fear the golden crust! The bread may look done on the outside, but the inside is what's important -- you don't want a gooey bread.
  6. Once a tester inserted into the bread comes out clean, cool for 10 minutes in pan on wire rack, then remove from pan gently and cool completely on wire rack. Cut into 12 slices and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you'd like to freeze your bread, simply wait until bread is completely cool, then slice and individually wrap in cling wrap and place in the freezer. Once ready to eat, just toast or microwave your slice and spread with your favorite topping.
