Phenom versions of banana bread!

I get very bored when I am home alone all day – I get antsy and need to constantly be doing something, today’s mission: BAKE!

I am a very picky banana eater – therefore, any banana that has any brown on it I will not eat.  In an effort to get rid of some brown nanners and some frozen ones (Mike thinks I have 30 old bananas in the freezer that take up too much space), I attempted to make banana bread. I love banana bread and have made it a variety of ways  my favorites are with chocolate chips and applesauce! However, I didn’t have chips nor applesauce, so I went with plan B.

I searched around for some healthy options to banana bread and stumbled on this lovely blog! After about an hour of looking through everything on her blog and Pinterest board, I decided to tackle the recipe – Greek Yogurt Blueberry Banana Bread! Yum!

Next came plan C – I didn’t have any blueberries, so I used frozen strawberries and peaches. I let them thaw and smashed with a potato masher so they were more fine…. attempt at Honey Greek Yogurt Strawberry-Peach Banana Bread! 🙂

I used a 13×9 for the fruity bread because I wanted bars and then also made this recipe with no other extras, just banana

Turned out delicious!! Had some as a little snack when it was all done and made a few plates to give out to our neighbors for helping while we were on vacation – home-baking is always a great way to say thanks 🙂

Here is the recipe as listed on http://www.nosugarsweetlife.com:
