Honey-Spice Whole Wheat Banana Bread Recipe

  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed overripe bananas, or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet.
  2. Toast in preheated oven until nuts start to turn golden brown and become fragrant, 10 to 15 minutes. Coarsely chop walnuts.
  3. Place walnuts in a large bowl. Add whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg; mix until combined.
  4. Mix mashed bananas, honey, eggs, yogurt, coconut oil, butter, and vanilla extract together in another large bowl. Add banana mixture to flour mixture, mixing with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until batter is just blended.
  5. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until edges and top are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.
