Banana Yogurt Bread with Walnuts

There's nothing better than the sweet, comforting scent of warm banana bread wafting out of the oven.

This recipe includes all the homey goodness of grandma's banana bread, and happens to be all natural and organic.


1/2 cup organic unsalted butter, melted
1 cup organic sugar
2 organic eggs
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup organic all purpose flour (or gluten-free flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup whole milk plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts, roughly walnuts
2 medium bananas, smashed
1/2 banana cut into small cubes


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with butter and dust it with flour. In a large bowl, combine melted butter and sugar. Whisk in eggs and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until smooth. Fold in the yogurt, walnuts, and bananas. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
