Healthified Banana Bread

I love making banana bread. One of the reasons is because of the smell that fills the house. YUM. Another reason is because I think it’s about the simplest bread that you can make. As easy as making cookies. I found a healthified banana bread recipe and decided to make it. I call it healthified because it still has a cube of butter, so it isn’t 100% healthy. 😉 However, it does have nonfat yogurt, flax seed and calorie free sweetener. I tweaked the original recipe to make it my own and it was delish. Of course, I got a little anxious and got it out a bit too early so it fell a bit in the middle.

    Looks like a great recipe but doesn’t look done all the way in the middle. Must need to bake it a bit longer.

      Yeah, I mentioned that in the post. I was a bit anxious and got it out early and that’s why it fell in the middle. It was still delicious though!
