Number of Servings: 30


    2 cups AP flour
    2 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 1/2 tsp coarse salt
    2 cups chopped walnuts

    6 medium bananas, very ripe, mashed
    2 cups cinnamon applesauce (no sugar added)
    6 oz non fat greek yogurt (Fage)
    4 eggs
    1 tbsp vanilla extract


Grease and flour two 9 by 5 inch load pans (you may need more). Place rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and walnuts and mix thoroughly.

In another bowl, use a wooden spoon to mix together the bananas, yogurt, eggs, applesauce and vanilla. With a rubber spatula, fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined and quite chunky. Scoop the batter into the prepared pans.

Bake until the bread is firm and golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Note: This bread will keep, tightly wrapped and refrigerated, for up to 1 week. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Or, freeze one loaf for up to 6 months, thawing and baking at 350 degrees for 15 minutes to warm it through. Enjoy!

  • I really butchered this recipe. I started out thinking I had all the ingredients but discovered I didn't. So instead of all applesauce, I added 1/4 cup of oil and for greek yogurt I pureed non fat cottage cheese with non fat sour cream. Must be a good recipe because it is still delicious.

  • Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
    I had all the ingredients and made it this morning. It smelled so good that I had some for breakfast while it was still warm! YUM! :)
