Very Moist, Healthy Banana Bread

True to its name, this banana bread is very moist- and it contains NO OIL! The moisture comes from the (reduced-fat) yogurt and very ripe bananas. You can make it your own by adding chocolate chips, dusting it with cinnamon sugar, or just keeping it plain and simple. I opted to make all 3 flavors using my mini-loaf pans. Enjoy!

Here is a close-up of the Banana Bread with chocolate chips:

Here is my trifecta of breads- Chocolate Chips, Cinnamon Sugar Chocolate Chips, Cinnamon Sugar-dusted:

Very Moist, Healthy Banana Bread

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar

1. Preheat to 350. Line muffin tin with liners.
2. Whisk together dry ingredients.
3. Beat together the bananas, yogurt, eggs, and melted butter in a large bowl.
4. Fold dry ingredients and any add-ins into wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
