Coconut Yogurt Banana Bread

Coconut Yogurt Banana Bread 3

Bananas are a staple item in my house. You would think a bunch of monkeys live here with all of the bananas that are eaten! There are always over-ripe bananas on my counter, so consequently, I make a lot of baked goods with mashed bananas in them. Bananas are a great egg replacer and add sweetness, moisture, and delicious flavor. I happen to be a BIG fan of banana bread…I mean really, who doesn’t love a piece of warm banana bread?!! This recipe is super yummy! The coconut yogurt adds a bit of richness and the perfect amount of subtle coconut goodness. This bread is so tender, moist, and perfectly delicious! Perfect with a cup of tea for a relaxing afternoon snack. Mmmmmm…

Coconut Yogurt Banana Bread

1½ cups gluten-free flour blend

1½ teaspoons baking soda

½ teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon

1/2 cup applesauce mixed with 2 teaspoons baking powder

2 medium/large bananas, mashed

1/2 cup coconut milk yogurt (I like vanilla flavored)

1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ cup coconut sugar

Preheat your oven to 350ºF, and lightly grease a 9 x 5 bread pan or line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir until well combined and set aside. Place the applesauce and baking powder in a medium sized mixing bowl. Mix well. Add mashed bananas, coconut milk yogurt, vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut sugar. Stir until well combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently. Do not over-mix. Pour the batter into the loaf pan, spreading it out evenly, and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
