Greek Yogurt Chocolate Banana Bread

Here’s another chocolate banana loaf made with absolutely no oil or refined sugar…it’s my Greek Yogurt Chocolate Banana Bread, very similar to the Low-fat Cinnamon Chocolate Banana Bread and just as healthy and delicious! I love making banana breads because they’re really hard to mess up. So what I like to do is switch things up and try healthy swaps for ingredients every time I make a new banana bread.

Sometimes the result is an un-called for bread-pudding-like consistency. So, with those “recipe experiments” I just scoop some vanilla ice cream over the concoction and eat my way through my failure thanking God for having a job where I get to eat my mistakes. BUT, in this healthy ingredient swap story, the result was a SUCCESS! Yay for this successful Greek Yogurt Chocolate Banana Bread (which later got smothered by a scoop of vanilla ice cream too…you know it! lol)
