Banana Flaxseed Bread

Ground flaxseed adds heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and nutty flavor in this Basic Banana Bread recipe. Look for whole ground flaxseed (sometimes labeled “flaxseed meal”) on the baking aisle.

ingredients

1-1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt
5 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6.75 oz. all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
Cooking spray

 

preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed. Add granulated and brown sugars; beat until combined.
  3. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through ground allspice). Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes (35-40 min for mini load pans) or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; cool completely.
