prep: 20 mins cook: 45 mins additional: 20 mins total: 85 mins Servings: 30 Yield: 2 7×3-inch loaves


3 large very ripe bananas, mashed

½ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons butter, softened

¼ cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

apple slices for garnish

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

banana slices for garnish

1 cup butter, melted

¾ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)

2 cups white sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ cup white sugar

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

4 eggs

½ cup packed brown sugar

2 apples, cubed


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease two 7×3-inch loaf pans.

In a bowl, whisk together 2 3/4 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the baking soda, and salt until thoroughly combined. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the melted butter with 2 cups of sugar until smooth, and mix in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the Greek yogurt and vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated.

Fold in the bananas, apples, and chopped walnuts until combined; do not overmix. There should be small chunks of banana visible in the batter. Pour half the batter into each prepared loaf pan.

Mix the brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of flour, and 3 tablespoons of softened butter together in a bowl until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle half the crumb topping over each loaf. Garnish each loaf with banana and apple slices.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then remove and cover each pan with aluminum foil. Return to oven, and bake an additional 15 or 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.
