Healthy Banana Bread

I’ve been searching everywhere for a healthy banana bread recipe and found one at Half Baked that looked pretty healthy because it contained no sugar or oil and uses whole wheat flour.  I made it this weekend with a couple substitutions- adding chopped walnuts and skipping the honey because instead of regular low fat Greek yogurt, I used my favorite carmel Greek yogurt by Stoneyfield.  I thought that would add enough sweetness.  Adding the walnuts was a hit, but don’t omit the honey like I did.  My bread wasn’t sweet enough, but I’m thinking this recipe would be good with the honey.  I’m going to keep experimenting!

    I have a similar recipe with all natural applesauce instead of yogurt…and a little more honey. Delish! Can be easily converted to pumpkin bread for the holidays too! Happy Baking 🙂

    Oh, this is when I hate that I can no longer have bananas. Looks so yummy.
