Lightened-up Banana Bread is filled with Greek Yogurt and a small amount of butter! This quick bread recipe is every bit delicious!
I always find myself wanting to be healthy. I think most people like that thought. But then that chocolate bar and Biscoff Spread are staring at me and I find myself dunking chunks of chocolate into Biscoff Spread... terrible I know. But so delicious! 🙂 Anyways lately I have been on this Banana Bread kick and I decided to try making some with greek yogurt. You know get some protein in there and get rid of some butter and sour cream and make a Healthy Banana Bread.
I began to make my banana bread. First, I emptied out my oven -- which stores a few extra pans. Then I turned the oven on. Next, I whipped up the banana bread. Poured it into a pan and then went to put it in the oven. Only once I put the pan in the oven it felt cold. I didn't get that rush of heat I normally do.
So I double-checked went to turn it off and on again. (That works with almost everything else) And nothing. It wasn't lighting and I was pissed!!!
Luckily I was going into work so I was able to bake it there.
Anyways this turned out good it was SUPPER moist. Some even said a little too moist. Maybe it should have cooked a little longer or maybe it was acting up since it was made and didn't bake for 2 hours. Who knows? Anyways all I know is that it was devoured at work and everyone loved it. Including me. I will defo make this again and next time I might even omit some sugar! AHHH scary thought for me!
