Chocolate Chip Banana Bread made with Greek Yogurt

bananachocobread-4

I don’t remember if I told you guys, but I took a little time off work this month and next. I was originally planning on doing some traveling, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to go anywhere too far since my DB has a pretty strict school schedule. Can he be a 3L already so we can travel?

It’s okay, though. I’ve been able to get a lot of Ebaying done. I haven’t Ebayed in months because it’s so time consuming and I’m away from home a lot, but now’s the perfect time to get all of it done.

Not only that, but now I have time to do things that I didn’t have time to before. I can try new things in the kitchen: working with yeast, cooking fish, and my favorite.. making ice cream! My DB’s mom gave me an ice cream maker and I’ve already started brainstorming all the possibilities. I’m currently freezing my bowl now so that I can use it in the machine tomorrow.

You guys will be the first to know on how my first ice cream attempt turns out. Do you have any tried and true recipes that I can add to my list? I have no experience whatsoever when it comes to making ice cream. Actually, I take that back. I think I might have made it in first grade classroom with a ziploc bag and some salt and ice, but that’s a little different.

But banana bread– that’s something I’m used to and have made plenty of times in my life. There are always brown bananas on my counter that are waiting to be used up. If I can’t use them in before they turn to complete mush, I’ll peel, slice, and freeze them to use in smoothies at another time. That way, no banana goes to waste.

This recipe uses greek yogurt to get that moisture everyone craves instead of the usual oil. To me, this bread wasn’t anything special. It was definitely moist, though. It didn’t rise as much as I would have liked and was a little too dense. I’ll have to experiment baking with greek yogurt more often. Maybe I’ll add that to my list for this month, too…

    What i do not understood is in fact how you are now not actually much more smartly-preferred than
    you may be now. You are very intelligent. You realize
    thus considerably relating to this matter, made me in my view consider it
    from so many varied angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be interested unless it’s one thing to do with Lady gaga!
    Your individual stuffs nice. At all times care for it up!

My husband and i find it amazing. i have made it 3 times already since finding the recipe a couple weeks ago and am about to make it again later. i love having it in the house as a (healthier) dessert option and it is sooo easy to make… moist….not too sweet. Thank you So very much! love this recipe!!!

    (It makes me crazy that this comment box won’t allow me to capitalize the letter I! lol)

    Just made this. Used 1.5 cup all purpose flour and 3 tbsp cornstarch, since I don’t have pastry flour on hand (I don’t bake often.) I used cane sugar syrup, because it has been sitting there for years and I’ve never had a reason to use it.

    I baked it in a tart pan and lightly frosted it with a vanilla icing. Made the icing strong because the flavors of the bread are very light, so this is actually very enjoyable. Would be great with a hot cup of coffee in the morning! Thank you for the recipe. :)

    I’m wondering if it should look moist on the inside or not. Mine looks moist, although I did cut it before it cooled. Wondering if it’s moist like that because of the banana/yogurt.

    Made this recipe today. It was good! i had a little container of chobani pineapple greek yogurt so that’s what i used. it was very dense, but delicious!

    Southeast Asian farmers first domesticated bananas. Recent archaeological and palaeoenvironmental evidence at Kuk Swamp in the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea suggests that banana cultivation there goes back to at least 5000 BCE, and possibly to 8000 BCE.`..;;

    I made this recipe twice and both times it came out rubbery. I followed the directions to the tea. Very disappointed.

    Not sure what i did wrong, but this was dense and yucky. my 5 year old helped make it and then didn’t want to eat it after one bite. I think the yogurt and banana’s together was too much “wet” and not enough dry ingredients. this is what i imagine sweetened rubber tastes like. look for another recipe.

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some help from an established blog. Is it very hard to
    set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers
