A moist banana bread made with olive oil, Greek yogurt (or sour cream), and a crunchy walnut topping. I borrowed techniques from a few recipes to create my ideal recipe!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour a 10x5-inch loaf pan.
Sift all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together.
Beat brown sugar, white sugar, and eggs in a stand mixer or with a hand-held electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Reduce speed to low and slowly drizzle in olive oil until evenly combined. Beat in bananas, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract until combined. Fold in 1/3 of the flour mixture with a spatula; repeat twice more until flour is fully incorporated.
Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle walnuts and Demerara sugar over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
