healthier banana bread



i know i said before that i don't like bananas, but i absolutely love banana bread. for a few days, we had some bananas sitting around slowly growing older, so i kept a careful eye on them, ready to pounce with my masher as soon as they were ready. and when they were, i happened to stumble upon this recipe from the talented Christina Kim.
the recipe not only promised a banana bread that was delicious and nutritious, we also happened to have all the ingredients at home. ok, so we had fat free plain yogurt instead of greek and we had no vanilla, but besides that we followed the recipe. it turned out great, although some people (my mom) said it was not moist enough. true, it was drier than your traditional banana bread, but it was still tasty in its own way.

You can make this type of lower fat bread even more tender by subbing some oat bran for some of the flour - like maybe 25%. We have that funny thing in our house, too, of D and C not liking bananas, but liking banana bread.

I gave my neighbor some of my zucchini the other day and she brought me over a yummy loaf of zucchini bread. :0)
