One Bowl, No Mixer Low-Fat Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt

IMG_2958

My kids love Banana Bread so when we have overripe bananas they always get put to good use. My oldest son, Alec, has really taken to cooking lately (i hope he’s not going to be mad I wrote this). I was so busy in the kitchen tonight with lasagna and spaghetti that I said, “Why don’t you make it yourself?” He took a recipe of mine and modified it using no mixer, one bowl and stirred it all together at once. He substituted Greek yogurt for the buttermilk, and it came out great! He was so surprised and proud when it came out of the oven, and I was really excited and impressed. It’s a great recipe. I hope it is one of many of his to come.
