A Healthier Banana Bread

Lately, the hubby and I have been trying to eat a little healthier. We stopped drinking soda (for the most part) which was a big part of our daily lives (sadly). We also have switched from white rice to brown rice and white bread to whole wheat and whole grains. It’s been a process but we want to set a better example for Kaylee. So, this past weekend, I wanted to make some banana bread. Instead of getting out the recipe that has a won of sugar and white flour, I decided to try my hand at making something a bit healthier. I came up with this whole wheat banana bread with greek yogurt and honey. Enjoy!

I use these as substitutes in a lot of my baking and it's nice to find a recipe where I don't have to guess at how to substitute.
