Number of Servings: 12


    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


Preheat oven to 350░.

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:áMakes 1 loaf, cut into 12 slices. One slice per serving.
