I have been on a banana bread kick lately! I love experimenting with different banana bread textures and flavors, mostly because there are certain ingredients out there I love using over and over. We knocked this banana bread up a notch with adding some chocolate, peanut butter and Greek yogurt to the mix!
I gave myself a tiny moment of accomplishment and applause with my banana bread results, took a few pics and then in one fatal swoop, I devoured a couple of pieces. Me swooping in? Oh, that's nothing new....really. I've been known to do things like that on many occasion, because I'm very impatient when it comes to freshly baked banana bread!
I love banana bread for breakfast and after work, for a delicious snack! So, so good. I love banana bread with hot cocoa too. OMG! What a treat! What's your favorite way?
Tips and banana bread love!
You can substitute applesauce for the eggs. Just use ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce and it's amazing. No difference really, except I've noticed in a lot of breads, applesauce is a great replacer for eggs.
For variation, you can substitute sour cream or buttermilk for the Greek yogurt.
Remember, the riper the bananas, the sweeter the bread will be. So, with that said, you can decrease the sugar as well ⅓ or ¼ cup for less sugar!
