Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Sharing is caring!

Don’t let the healthy name fool you, this banana bread is moist and full of flavor. Whole grains, high fiber and low fat and sugar are just the added benefits. My family devours it! This can also be made in 4 mini loaf pans, just bake for 25 to 30 minutes at the same temperature.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, divided, or as needed
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions:

Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large bowl.

Heat milk, water, and 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan until very warm (120 degrees to 130 degrees F).

Add warm milk mixture to the flour mixture. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed of an electric mixer, scraping the bowl occasionally. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat for 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape pieces into balls and place in a greased 8-inch round pan. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Bake rolls in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 20 minutes. Serve warm.
