Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt I used Fage
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil (canola works too)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 tablespoon oats optional garnish

  3. In a stand mixer, add the oil, vanilla, sugar, egg, Greek yogurt and mashed bananas.
  4. Mix on low until well-combined, about 1 minute.
  5. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients with the mixer on low, and mix until well-combined.

Recipe Notes

* If you are using regular whole wheat flour, I would suggest using half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat (3/4 cup of each). Heads up: I have tried all regular whole wheat, but it turned out too dense. Using only all-purpose (1 1/2 cups) works great too!
