Banana Bread

This is my Mother-in-law's recipe for banana bread, with a few modifications from me to healthify it. This weekend I whipped up a loaf and some muffins to use up some bananas that I had in the freezer

Banana Bread

-1 stick butter
-1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
-3 cups sugar
-4 eggs
-½ cup milk
-2 teaspoons vanilla
-6 large mashed bananas
-2 cups all purpose flour
-2 cups whole wheat flour
-2 teaspoons baking soda
-1 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in yogurt.  Add eggs, vanilla, and milk, beating well. Alternately add mashed bananas and flour and baking soda. Stir in nuts or chocolate chips. Pour thick batter into 3 greased and floured loaf pans and bake 50-60 minutes at 325 or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (Or for muffins I bake them at 350 for 20-22 minutes).
