Recipe Ingredients:

Banana Bread:
Olive oil cooking spray
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup light olive oil
1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large, very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)

Chocolate Drizzle:
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoon 1% low-fat milk, plus more if needed
1/2 ounce dark chocolate (60 to 70% cocoa solids), finely chopped

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. For Banana Bread: In large bowl, whisk together flours, sugars, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In medium bowl, whisk together light olive oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla, then whisk in mashed banana to combine. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
