This recipe was inspired by a recipe I found written on a scrap of paper while cleaning last week. I don’t know the original source, but I’ve edited it slightly and the results were positively delicious.

Banana Bread

1 stick melted butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or your favorite gluten-free blend)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 thoroughly ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan or 9×9 baking pan.
Combine the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the egg, butter, and vanilla mixture and stir to combine. Fold in the bananas and greek yogurt, and pour evenly into your pan. Bake for 30-60 minutes (varies depending on the pan you use). The top and sides should be a golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

If you’d like, add chocolate chips, walnuts, or sliced almonds along with the bananas and yogurt in the final step for some yummy variations.
