  • ½ cup plain FF Greek yogurt (120g)

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 3-4 tablespoons SF maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup finely chopped or ground walnuts

  • In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.

  • In a medium bowl, mash bananas in a large bowl using the back of a fork or a potato masher. Try to get it as smooth as possible but small lumps are fine. Measure out 1 cup. To the same bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix together until well combined.

  • Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

  • Optional: Spread cream cheese frosting on the cooled cake. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
