I grew up with banana bread, it was one of my favorite treats and it was always the first thing I looked for when I visited my Grammie’s house. She almost always had little loaves wrapped in plastic wrap waiting for my cousins and me and we would each get our own loaf alongside a Shirley Temple.

Banana bread is something that will always remind me of my sweet Grammie and the days I spent with her.

During the fall, I love incorporating apples into everything from cupcakes to pork chop recipes and this Apple Banana Bread is bound to be another fall favorite! It takes the comforts of that classic banana bread recipe and amps it up a bit, adding a fall twist but maintaining that delicious banana flavor we all love.

It’s easy to make, about 10 minutes of prep and an hour of baking and you’ll have this scrumptious bread ready for devouring.

I love quick or snack bread because it doesn’t require yeast, something that’s always been a tricky ingredient for me. I know it seems weird to be switching up such a classic, but I’m in no way saying this should replace classic banana bread, rather, I think you should make both!

    Excellent recipe! I just lessened the total amount of sugar to 3/4 cup coconut sugar and omitted the white regular sugar altogether. I also substituted 3/4 cup of oat flour to the 3/4 cup of AP flour called for in the recipe, and left the 1 cup AP flour in. I added a little bit more apples since I had so much. I also added more cinnamon (coz I love it so much), 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/8 tsp ground cloves, and 1/8 tsp of cardamom. My total baking time at 350F was 35-40 mins. About 25 mins in, I had to tent mine with foil to prevent the top from burning. It came out great!!!! Not that sweet, just like I like it! Perfect!

  2. Can you substitute a non-dairy item for the yogurt? Is so, what could you substitute? This recipe sounds delicious and I have bananas and apples on hand.

    Loved it! Everyone makes adjustments, but other than extra apple and banana, I followed it. Will add cinammon next time. But moist, and full of flabor.
