No Monkey Business Banana Bread

This recipe uses honey and yogurt and the flavors compliment the bananas without overpowering them.

3 lg. very ripe bananas
1 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup of clover honey
2 eggs
3 cups of unbleached flour
2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. In a large bowl mash bananas (use a potato masher if you have one!)
2. Add yogurt and mash together
3. Add honey and mash together -- you may want to reuse the measuring cup you used for the yogurt or spray a little non-stick oil into the measuring cup before you measure out the honey.
4. Add brown sugar and mash
5. Add flour, baking powder, vanilla, eggs and mix until well blended
6. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans
7. Cook for 45 minutes to an hour, checking for doneness after 45 minutes. Should be a nice lightly golden brown.

Let cool about 15 minutes before serving.
