I absolutely love bananas, and I also love bread, but the best thing is banana bread. I am always looking for new ways to adapt delicious recipes into a somewhat "healthier" version, so I followed this recipe, but made a couple of switches. 

First of all, I put the batter into one large loaf pan instead of a bunch of mini pans and I also did not use the 1/2 cup of oil. I increased the amount of Greek yogurt to 3/4 cup.

    Bake for 27-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan.

The bread tasted really good! However, the middle was a little undercooked, so in the future I will try covering the loaf pan with tinfoil and bake it a little bit longer so the sides do not burn and the bread will cook more throughout (a beautiful suggestion made by my wonderful editor Katherine). If you try this recipe or make an adjustment let me know how it turns out!
