  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • ¼ cup flaked coconut, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
  • 1 (6 ounce) container plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar (see Tips)
  • ¼ cup canned crushed pineapple (juice pack), well drained
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat bottom and sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl combine flours, coconut, baking soda, ginger, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine bananas, yogurt, eggs, brown sugar, pineapple, melted butter, and vanilla. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture; stir until evenly moistened. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover loosely with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack. Wrap in plastic wrap or foil; store overnight before slicing.
