Banana Bread

I love baking. And when it starts to get chilly and the leaves start to change color, I want my house to smell like sugar and spice and everything else cozy and nice. This banana bread actually had its start because my banana-loving 4-year-old decided she didn’t like bananas this week, so I had some leftover bananas that needed to be used asap – and isn’t that how most people decide to bake banana bread? With this bread the yogurt helps to keep it moist, the spices make my house smell delicious, and the bananas get used. Winning!
