I know that I just gave you a quick bread last week, but this bread is way different (but just as easy!). The last one was savory where this one is sweet. I ate the last one with dinner and then would have this for dessert. I think you get the picture. One can never have too much bread in the house. Plus I had bought a huge bunch of bananas from Costco and needed to make something with the overripe ones.
I found this banana bread on Sally’s Baking Addiction, which is a great site. Her site is actually what inspired me to begin my own blog. I know I should keep you here, but it’s worth taking a look at all her delicious recipes. Alright! That’s enough about Sally. Now focus on this bread which is very moist and perfect right out of the oven. The sweetness is mostly concentrated in the cinnamon sugar swirl that runs through the middle. I liked this bread just plain, but my boyfriend would heat it up and add ice cream on top. Of course, he likes to add ice cream to just about anything.
One of the things that drew me to this recipe was that it only took half a stick of butter and used greek yogurt. I’m a sucker for adding greek yogurt to recipes because it ups the calcium and protein content, while the flavor just blends into the recipe and no one’s the wiser that what they’re eating has been healthified. Yeah…I just made that up. It really should be a verb. If you have bananas in the house, make it now. If not, get some bananas, let them ripen, and then make it. The riper the bananas the sweeter the bread will be.
