  • ¼ cup Canola Oil
  • 1 cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Large Eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 3 whole Bananas, medium sized, very ripe

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas with a fork or masher in a large mixing bowl. Add oil, egg, sugar, and vanilla and whisk until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, then slowly add them to the wet and stir until just combined.
