Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

This is a fabulous recipe for banana bread! This can also be baked in mini loaf pans and it also makes 12 muffins, bake for 20-25 minutes. I also added in some shredded carrots and nuts then baked it in a 9x5-inch loaf pan, for less fat use low-fat yogurt or sour cream

I love this recipe and even cut back on the sugar to make it healthier. When I eat it I think of gingerbread more than banana bread. Which is fine by me!
