Banana/Yogurt Bread

Chocolate chips make everything better, so why not throw some into this quasi-healthy bread?
Recipe adapted from Low Fat Cooking  My version has reduced fat and sugar and added chips.

  • 2 cups flour: mixed wheat and unbleached white
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 small bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup homemade yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla and almond extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix the flour, salt and baking soda and a medium bowl. Mix the sugar, butter, applesauce in a large bowl with an electric mixer and beat until well mixed. Add the eggs one at a time. In a seperate bowl, mash bananas and combine with extracts and yogurt. Add to the egg mixture and beat a bit more. Add the flours and chocolate chips and combine with a spatula or wooden spoon until just mixed. Pour into a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 70+ minutes, or in 3 little loaf pans for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The decreased fat and increased saucy liquids makes the cooking time a little longer, so keep an eye on them.

Great for breakfast or dessert and snacks in between.
