Oat Bran Banana Bread

The bananas you use to make this classic comfort food should be very ripe. To make banana-nut bread, stir 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts into the batter before pouring it into the pan and baking.
Special Diets:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons oat bran
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 very ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon frozen apple juice concentrate thawed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup nonfat milk or soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
Method

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9x4-inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together bananas, oil, apple juice, vanilla, milk and yogurt. Add banana mixture to flour mixture and stir just to combine. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly before slicing.
