Easy Banana Bread recipe with step by step photos and short video . Banana Bread is a sweet bread with robust banana flavor and light texture. Goodness about this banana bread is its a kind of healthier bread made with whole wheat flour , oats , milk , yogurt and oil . This can be a served either for breakfast or along with a tea time snack.

Unlike other breads its not dense in texture , its light and tastes delicious . In this recipe , I have used home made yogurt as a replacement for eggs. I recommend home made yogurt here because naturally cultured bacteria gives a tang taste and its acidity activates baking soda in bread which yields a soft and light bread. Also it keeps the bread moist without drying out. But if you can eat egg then add 2 eggs in place of yogurt.

Banana Bread Recipe

Adding eggs will give a airy light bread. I have made this banana bread by adding egg also. It comes out really well with a nice airy texture and its hard say whether its a bread or a cake , its that good.

Can use all purpose flour in place of wholewheat flour. I added whole wheat flour in the recipe just to add some fiber in the bread. As this is my breakfast bread, I get a feel of eating healthier. You can also toss in some walnuts , choco chips and some seeds to get a nice crunchy taste. Just keep the basic measurement right , get creative and other add on’s as per your liking’s.

This banana bread is good to eat on its own . But you can even spread some butter , peanut butter , almond butter or choco butter. If you are planning to serve with any kind of sweetened butter then make sure to add less sugar in the recipe to suit your taste.

Notes

  • Wholewheat flour can be replaced with all purpose flour. 
  • Batter may look bit thick , don’t worry if you are using wholewheat flour. If its bit loose with more water , then bread may become dense after baking while using wholewheat flour. In case if the batter is too thick not even  thick spoon dropping consistency , then feel free to add little more milk to loosen the batter. Because it depends on quality of the wheat flour used.
  • Yogurt can be replaced with 2 eggs in the recipe. Try using homemade yogurt as it has naturally cultured bacteria , which helps to activate soda in bread. Also it has enough water content in it which is sufficient to bake bread. Avoid using thick yogurt . If using set curd from stores then for 1/2 cup curd use 1/2 cup water  to thin it out. Also few drops of lime juice would work better in such case.
  • I added 2/3 cup of sugar , I personally found it to be little sweeter for my taste buds. But friends & family found this perfect . I feel sugar can be reduced to 1/2 cup . If you are serving with peanut / almond/ hazel nut sugared butter then do reduce the sugar in the recipe.
