Best Ever Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Heather

I created this quick bread recipe a few years back and it always receives rave reviews when I share it. However, often times my family eats it so fast that there is none left to share! The secret ingredients that make it different than most other banana breads are the addition of the peach flavored yogurt and the cinnamon sugar spinkled on top. To make it "Better For You Banana Bread," substitute 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup of the vegetable oil.

Great recipe! Substituted vanilla yogurt since I didn't have peach flavor. Also used 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar since we don't like supersweet foods. Came out perfect! Made 1 loaf regular and added chocolate chips to the 2nd loaf - everyone loved the 2nd loaf better than the 1st! My fave banana bread recipe!
