2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
2 Tbsp flaxseeds, whole or ground (your choice)
1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional (not included in nutrition facts)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
3 mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking spray or oil to grease pan
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, flaxseed, nuts, and chocolate chips (if using), stirring with a whisk.
Use a mixer on medium speed or a food processor (my choice) to combine ingredients for the next steps:
Blend sugar and butter until well blended (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended.
Pour wet mixture over flour mixture; beat at low speed or by hand just until moist.
Spoon batter into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray or oil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 10 minutes or more before serving.
Serving Size: Makes 1 loaf, cut into 12 slices. One slice per serving.
Number of Servings: 12
