Dark bananas and a little Greek yogurt are the secret to preparing our super moist einkorn banana bread. This recipe yields two good-sized loaves so you’ll have plenty to share with your tribe (and hopefully enough left over for later!).
Our banana bread is a wonderful hostess gift and keeps wonderfully in the freezer so you can enjoy a slice or two on demand. If you opt for the freezer, wrap the loaves in parchment paper then place in a re-sealable plastic bag.

Super Moist Einkorn Banana Bread Recipe
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose einkorn flour, 15.75 oz
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted, (1 ½ sticks)
- 2/3 cup water, warm
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 eggs, plus 1 egg white
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two loaf pans by spraying with cooking spray. Place parchment in each pan so it sticks up over each long side. These will be your ‘handles’ to pull out the loaf when cooled. Press parchment to stick to sides of pan and spray again. Set aside.
- Sift flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder into a medium bowl and set aside.
- Mix mashed bananas, yogurt, butter, warm water, and vanilla in large bowl. Add eggs and egg white one at a time to banana mixture, stirring continuously. Add sugar and mix well by hand. Do not use a mixer!
- Add dry ingredients 1 cup at a time, stirring continuously.
- Pour mixed ingredients into two prepared pans and sprinkle chopped walnuts over top of each loaf. Bake 50–55 minutes. Remove from oven when a few crumbs still cling to a tester. Let cool in pan 10 minutes before removing loaves to a cooling rack.
Use extra-ripe bananas to achieve that extra moist texture. The darker the better!
