Banana Bread

It's no secret that I absolutely love bread. Of any kind, really. It's also no secret that sometimes I buy bananas at the store and just don't ever eat them so they slowly die on my counter making me feel like some sort of heathen. 

I've been on the hunt for a good macro-friendly banana bread recipe that didn't taste extremely bland or look like bird seed for a while now. And ladies and gentleman, I think I finally found it! This recipe is moist, lower on the carb side and little to almost no fat. It uses greek yogurt and Walden Farms pancake syrup and it has NO sugar and NO butter! You're welcome. I made the bread with just the base to get the macros for you, but you could easily add in chocolate chips or nuts of any kind. Just make sure you account for those when tracking :)
