Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 5mins

I took my mom's recipe and made it a bit healthier. If you want to make it extra moist, you can double the applesauce and yogurt (to 1/2 cup each).

Great recipe! I followed the recipe, except I used eggbeaters, 3 bananas and skim milk. They made 9 beautifully domed muffins that baked for 25 minutes. I'm going to use this recipe as a basic and try adding nuts, chocolate chips, etc. Thanks again!
