Extra Moist Banana Bread
Move over ever other Banana Bread recipe you’ve ever used. Here comes the best, most moist, banana-y flavored, knock your socks off Banana Bread Recipe you have ever shoved in your mouth. This Extra Moist Banana Bread recipe is the most delicious thing I’ve ever made. I’m not kidding.
It has a few unusual ingredient you might have seen in other “moist banana bread” recipes such as instant pudding and greek yogurt, but amounts have been exhaustively tried in my “test kitchen” 😉 You might find that there are pockets of the loaf that seem like they like they are raw or uncooked but that is the beauty of this recipe, it is actually what the pudding does, it makes it seem raw/uncooked but it is just little pockets of deliciousness.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease loaf pan well with nonstick cooking spray
Cream in a large bowl with paddle attachment butter and 1 cup of the brown sugar. It will be light color and completely combined.
Add eggs one at a time, mix until combined.
Add yogurt, bananas, and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly combined.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and instant pudding. With mixer on slow, add dry mix slowly, until JUST combined. Your batter will be thick and lumpy but do not over mix. It is better to mix with your mixer and not by hand as by hand you will more than likely over mix it.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
With remaining brown sugar and cinnamon: mix together and sprinkle over batter, pat down and even out.
Bake 30 minutes uncovered.
After 30 minutes, tent tin foil over pan to continue baking. Bake an additional 30 minutes, check for doneness. Your bread my require between 30-60 additional minutes of baking while tented depending on how large your loaf pan is.
This recipe is so easy NO ONE can mess it up! But I do have a few tricks to make it easier and a tiny bit more delicious 😉
This is so easy you will memorize the recipe and keep some on hand all the time (for emergencies only, of course). I use plain ole rice chex, but I am sure you could us any kind you prefer. The nicest thing about this recipe also is you can customize it any way you want! Add, change out, use what you have on hand, whatever you want, the options are endless!
Oh, yea, and I forgot… we DO NOT call them Muddy Buddies – it is Puppy Chow all the way!
Puppy Chow Recipe (Muddy Buddies)
Most people call them Muddy Buddies, but we prefer Puppy Chow! A standard recipe with a few pointers to make it easier and fool proof.
In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and vanilla
Microwave on 50% power until all melted and smooth.
(note: heating on full power may scotch the chocolate. Also, heating too much/hot will scotch the chocolate, once the bowl is too hot to handle and chocolate is soft but still lumpy, remove from microwave and stir with a spatula until chocolate is fully melted)
In an over-sized bowl, put chex mix and pour melted chocolate over it.
Gently mix with a wooden spoon until all cereal is coated with chocolate.
In a gallon bag, pour 1 cup of powdered sugar. Then add the chocolate coated. Then add the remaining cup of powdered sugar.
Shake bag until completely coated.
Keep in freezer or refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
