Honey Banana Bread

I…may or may not have eaten an entire loaf of this in 24 hours. It was that tasty. Good thing this recipe makes two 8x4x2.5 loaves, so you have extra to give to a friend or just keep all the deliciousness to yourself. Honey, greek yogurt and almond milk gives this a healthier kick than traditional butter/sugar recipes, and the addition of chocolate chips and walnuts just takes it to a different level.

HONEY BANANA BREAD (makes two loaves)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups chocolate chips
  • 1.5 cups crushed walnuts
  • Brown sugar, for sprinkling on the top of the breads

-Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

-Lightly grease the loaf pans, then pour the batter into each equally. Top with a sprinkling of brown sugar.

-Bake about 50 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the loaf. I tented these with foil at about 30 minutes so the tops didn’t get too browned.

-Cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes while breads are still in their pans, then remove from pans and let cool completely. Serve and enjoy!
