Healthy Banana Nut Bread

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by FirstChoiceHealthyF

This is the best Banana Nut Bread I have ever had and it is healthy for you. I used my Bread Maker but next time I am going to try and just bake it in a loaf pan. I am also going to try and use a little bit less sugar. I also used a unbleached white/multi-grain flour which I purchased at Costco. This recipe was adapted from another recipe on Recipezaar to be healthier. It is a good basic recipe that you can alter to create your own.

Scrumptious banana bread, dense and moist and flavorful. I cut the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp., and I did not have yogurt so I subbed a scant 1/4 cup olive oil. Baked this in a greased and floured loaf pan at 350 for about 40 minutes. Wonderful.
