banana breadWe always buy a lot of bananas.  They are great for breakfast, to throw in the lunchbox or a good after school snack.  Because we buy so many, sometimes they become ripe too quick.  When the family sees the bananas starting to turn a little dark, I always say I’m going to make banana bread.  In the past, they were like yeah right you’re going to make banana bread.   I would end up throwing the bananas away before I found the time to make the banana bread.   But now I found this super easy banana bread recipe.  I tweaked it up by adding my new found favorite staple, Greek yogurt.  It makes it oh so moist and delicious! Now when the guys see the bananas starting to get a little spotty, they know they will soon be smelling the aroma of bananas from the oven.
I prefer the small loaf pans, then we each get our own individual loaf.
Yogurt Banana Bread

3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 egg white
1/2 cup applesauce (or 1/2 cup oil)
1/2 cup Greek 2% yogurt
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas in mixing bowl. Add sugar, eggs, oil, and yogurt mixing well each time.  Add dry ingredients together and add to banana mixture.  Add the vanilla. Pour in a greased and floured 5×9 loaf pan or four small loaf pans and bake 50 to 60 minutes.
 Notes:  You may substitute 1/2 cup oil for the applesauce.  Oil will just increase the calories.
