inch (20 x 10 cm) loaf pan
with a nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix the
mashed bananas with the baking soda and yogurt. Allow to sit while you prepare the
rest of the batter.
Meanwhile, in a
separate bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, egg or egg whites, and vanilla.
In another large
bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt.
Then combine the
banana mixture with the oil mixture and then add to the flour mixture. Stir just
until all the ingredients are moistened. Pour into
the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for about 45 - 55 minutes, or until a
toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Remove from oven
and place on a wire rack to cool.
