  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

  • 3/4 cup pecans or walnuts pieces
  • 1/4 cup sugar sucanat, or coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 2 eggs or egg substitute equivalent
  • 2 small bananas or more if you LOVE banana!
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F (176˚C). Spray an 8 1/2-inch x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
  • Place eggs or substitute, coconut oil, yogurt, bananas, and vanilla into your jar in the order listed and secure lid.
  • For Blendtec: Press the BATTERS button. Pour batter into dry ingredients and use a spatula to gently mix until just combined. If you have WILDSIDE jar, you can now add the dry ingredients and pulse to combine. Then add nuts and continue to pulse 1-3 times until combined.
  • For Vitamix: Start on speed 1, turn machine on and slowly increase to speed 5. Blend for 10-15 seconds or until mixed. Pour batter into dry ingredients and mix gently by hand to combine.
  • Stir nuts into batter, reserving some to sprinkle on top.
  • Bake for 60 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
