Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread



2 ripe bananas, mashed *

1½ cups flour  

½ tsp. salt

¾ tsp. baking powder

¾ tsp. baking soda

1½ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. nutmeg

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt

2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)


¼ cup sugar

½ tsp cinnamon



Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and sides of a loaf pan


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In large bowl, mix together the sugar, brown sugar, and eggs. Add the yogurt, mashed bananas, and melted butter to the sugar and egg mixture and stir. Add the flour mixture and blend until it is combined. Add nuts if desired.


Stir together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Add half the batter to the loaf pan and spread it evenly before sprinkling on half of the topping mixture. Add the rest of the batter and then the remaining topping mixture on top. With an inserted knife, make a swirling motion from side to side, through both layers of the batter throughout the whole pan (don’t over swirl).


Bake 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


* Can substitute 1 cup chunky applesauce for the bananas.
