I decided to post this before the family got to it.....laugh out loud!
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large bananas)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup canola, vegetable, or corn oil
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg or 2 large egg whites
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup Craisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place the rack in the center of the oven. Spray an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with a nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas with the baking soda and yogurt. Allow to sit while you prepare the rest of the batter.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, egg or egg whites, and vanilla.
In another large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, ground cinnamon, walnuts, Craisins and salt.
Then combine the banana mixture with the oil mixture and then add to the flour mixture. Stir just until all the ingredients are moistened. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for about 45 minutes, then lower temp to 325 degrees of another 10 to 15 minutes. When toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean remove from over and allow to cool on wire rack.
Place on serving plate to slice & enjoy.
