LIGHTER CINNAMON WALNUT BANANA BREAD

Another experiment in the kitchen gone good.  Hunter loves banana bread, so when I found this recipe below, I knew I had to try it with my own spin.  It was perfect and delicious.  
Here’s what you will need: 
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • ⅓ cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • Glaze:
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon (I added a lot because I love it, but you can tone it down with a bit less)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a 8.5 x 4.5 inch bread pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. 
  2. In medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and set aside. In another larger bowl cream together sugar and butter until creamy. Add mashed bananas and stir to combine. Mix in eggs, honey , vanilla, and greek yogurt. Add in the dry ingredients. Stir in Walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean. Let cool. 
  3. Mix together powdered sugar, milk, more cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Drizzle glaze over cooled loaf and top with extra crushed walnuts.
