No Mixer Banana Bread

Nov 03, 2015

If you like banana bread, you will adore this version that doesn’t require any mixers and has a secret ingredient — Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt creates a very soft and moist texture and allows you to use less butter so it adds protein to the recipe and less fat. Because no mixer is needed, it’s a great recipe for kids to make with you. Enjoy for breakfast, an after school snack, dessert or gift it to neighbors and co-workers as a holiday gift!

No Mixer Banana Bread

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 55 minutes
Yield: 8 servings


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1 (6-ounce) container nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking spray
1 sliced bananas
1 teaspoon granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, bananas, yogurt, nuts, if desired, and vanilla in a large bowl, mixing well. Pour batter into an 8 1/2-x-4 1/2 -inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Assemble banana slices on top of loaf in 2 rows, leaving 1 1/2 -inch-wide space down center to ensure even rise. Lightly sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.

Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
