Recipe from Penzeys Spices winter 2009 catalog. I haven't made this but I want it in my cookbook so I'm posting it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F Grease a large 9x5 loaf pan and set aside.
  2. Stir the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, nuts and chocolate chips together in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the mashed bananas, yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla together.
  4. Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined and the batter looks thick and chunky.
  5. Spoon the batter into the loaf pan and smooth the surface with a spatula.
  6. Bake at 325°F until the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 70-75 minutes.
  7. Cool in the pan for about 5 minutes and then turn out and let cool on a wire rack.

I made this today. Used only 2 bananas since that is all I had. Plain Greek yogurt. A little ginger and omitted the allspice. Used regular chocolate chips, I loved that it was not sweet but nice and moist with wonderful flavor. I will make again. I love Penzey's spices.
