IMG_9250.jpg
  1. 250 g flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  3. a pinch of salt
  4. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. 110 g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  6. 145 g brown sugar
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 80 g Greek yogurt
  9. 2 cups ripe bananas / about 3-4 ripe bananas (mashed)
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 50 g chopped walnuts (optional)
  12. chocolate chips (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the yogurt, mashed bananas, and vanilla extract on medium speed until combined.
  5. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula, until no lumps remain. Do not over-mix. Fold in the walnuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan and top with chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 60-65 minutes. Loosely cover the bread with foil after 30 minutes to help prevent the top from getting too brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the banana bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
