The Ultimate Banana Snack Cake

The Ultimate Banana Snack Cake

Wes has decided that, yes, in fact he really only does like cheese.  Cheese and water.  So what used to be a diet rich in fresh produce has slowly eeked away, even to the point of throwing bananas and all banana products on the floor.

The dogs are happy about it.  Mom, not so much.

Although I guess I can’t really blame him – I’m not a big raw banana fan myself, but honestly it was one of the few things he would eat.  But that was once upon a time…last week.

It really shouldn’t be a surprise that the overabundance of black bananas in our house was at an all-time high the past few days, considering the fact that Weston’s banana-a-day habit disappeared within about 12 hours.  So that time a few days before the banana boycott when I thought I was a rockstar mom for remembering to get bananas just in time for them to be ripe when the previous bunch ran out?  Ah yes.  The parenting gods are laughing at me now!


  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I love using the new Chobani 2% Banana yogurt for this – perfection!)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (I have used both all purpose and whole wheat, both work great)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
