    I’ve had bunches of over ripe bananas lately and not being partial to eating spotted bananas or feeling like making smoothies I had to do something. I’ve always loved banana bread and decided to doctor up a recipe to give it a bit more fiber and protein – this might actually be good for breakfast! 
    For the yogurt, I used Brown Cow’s Chocolate flavor since we happen to have a partial container. Hmm, wouldn’t it be nice to perhaps use a fruit flavored yogurt and add some dried fruit to the batter? 
    You can use what ever nuts you have around as long as they haven’t gone rancid. If they have throw them out!
