This banana bread recipe is a combination of two popular recipes: one by Stella Parks and the other by Handle the Heat. It's now my favorite banana bread recipe ever!
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ cups mashed bananas (3-4 bananas)
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped chocolate
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F, grease and line a loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, oat flour (made by blending regular oats in a blender, processor, or spice grinder), salt, cloves, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk the bananas, yogurt, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract carefully - the oil will want to jump out!
  4. Pour liquids into. the dry ingredients and combine. Fold in the chocolate and walnuts, reserving a tablespoon of each for the topping.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan, sprinkle the remaining walnuts and chocolate and bake for 50 minute to an hour and ten minutes until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out with crumbs barely sticking to it.
