Whole Wheat Banana Bread with Yogurt

I love banana bread, especially for a quick and easy breakfast. It’s easy to make and simply delicious. This recipe is a little healthier with added yogurt and whole wheat flour, making it tasty and perfect as a light snack.

200 grams brown sugar
120 ml. canola oil
2 large eggs, at room temperature
200 ml. yogurt 3% fat
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

  4. Add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and baking powder and fold in using a spatula, just until you get a smooth batter.
