This is the best Easy Banana Bread Recipe–it’s easy to customize with the ingredients you have and it always turns out moist, tender, and just sweet enough.


– 1 cup mashed very ripe banana about 3 small – ½ cup sugar – ½ cup plain nonfat yogurt we usually use low-fat sour cream – ¼ cup margarine melted (we usually use butter) – 2 eggs – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – ½ teaspoon baking soda – ¼ teaspoon salt – ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans toasted

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat an 8 ½ x 4 ½ x 3-inch loaf pan with baking spray and dust with flour.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Add the nuts and stir just until moistened.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the top with sugar and more chopped nuts if you like.

Bake for 45 minute to 1 hour, or until the center registers between 200°F and 205°F on an instant read thermometer, a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Then remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
