Banana bread has become a staple in my house.  My little boys love eating it in slices or muffin form.  Sometimes I toss in chocolate chips or just coat the top with them.  However I make it, it’s always gone almost as fast as it took me to make! 

I’m sure most people have a banana bread recipe they use from time to time.  I originally got this recipe from my Aunt Susie who is one fabulous baker and supreme chocolate fudge maker.  When it comes to great recipes I tend to leave them alone and make them just as they are.   

This updated version has two secret ingredients.  Not only are there mashed bananas, but I include sliced bananas as well!  It just brings a complete new level of moisture to the bread.  And speaking of moisture, I also add in plain Greek yogurt.  The old recipe called for sour cream, but I find I really like the yogurt much better!
