1+1+1= Banana Bread Love

 + Non Fat Plain Yogurt  

+ Nutella  

 = Banana Bread

Banana Bread w/ Nutella!
How gooood does that sound? I adapted this recipe from Cooking Light and added my own little delicious twist.

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3-4 mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup plain fat free yogurt (I like greek yogurt)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cooking spray
Wax paper

Preheat oven to 350

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
Put butter and sugar in a large bowl & beat with a mixer at medium speed until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until mixed. Cut wax paper to fit an 8 x 4 loaf pan, leaving more on the sides to help you pull out the bread when it is done. Then spray waxed pan with cooking spray. Pour ingredients into loaf pan.
Bake @ 350 for 1 hour or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes in pan and then pull out with wax paper.

Add 1 Tbsp of Nutella in a small bowl and microwave till softened. Cut yourself a piece of bread and spread Nutella on top.

Heaven :) Add fresh berries for extra yumminess.
