Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

January 11, 2017

Soft banana bread with lots of sweet cinnamon throughout.

Banana bread is something that doesn't last very long in our house. Whenever I make a loaf, it can literally be gone within an hour or two. If you smell it baking in my kitchen, you better be there when it's cool or you won't get a chance for a slice!

What about you and your family? Banana bread..yay or nay?

While doing this post, I realized there is actually 5 more banana bread recipes here at Table for Seven. I guess we really do love our banana bread! We have the cake mix variety, caramel swirled, peanut butter chocolate chip, chocolate marbled and just regular, plain banana bread.  All delicious! So, be sure to try a few :)

Today, we have a cinnamon swirl banana bread. Like the list above, it's delicious too. This one is also made with Greek yogurt. No butter! So, it's not only delicious, it's a little bit healthier for you. Perfect for the whole "let's eat healthier because it's January kinda thing". Nice, right? It also gives the bread a great, moist, texture.

A nice cinnamon sugar swirl is right in the middle of the bread and it has a sweet cinnamon sugar topping. It's just soooo good, guys.

Perfect for breakfast with a nice cup of tea, a snack or dessert.

Enjoy!
