    Marlitt's Note:

    This is a really quick and easy recipe. Most of all its healthy, moist and tasty. The recipe has been in the family as long as I can remember. Not really sure where it came from. Kids still ask for it when they're coming home from college on the weekend.

      This is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe, Marlitt. You can make it even more healthy by substituting unsweetened applesauce for the butter, dropping the calories per serving down to around 200 calories.

      This recipe turned out wonderful! Just as moist and flavorful as a regular banana bread recipe. Will definitely use this as my regular banana bread recipe.

      This was delicious and moist, though I did make a few adjustments to make it more healthy. I used all whole wheat flour, replaced the butter with 1/2 c. flaxseed meal and 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce, and I used 1/3 c. honey in place of the brown sugar. And I made them into muffins... (baked at 375 for 20 minutes and came out with 16 muffins) half with pecans and half without for my kids--who absolutely loved them. I think the yogurt made them extra moist. Thanks!
