Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

I must admit that I'm going to miss being able to buy blueberries for next to nothing since they're going out of season. After my small pity party I decided that these little gems needed a last hurrah. I originally found this recipe and put my own little healthy spin on it by using white whole wheat flour, egg whites, and zero calorie brown sugar. The end result? Paired with my morning Cup of Joe, nothing could be better!

Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup zero calorie brown sugar (like the kind by Splenda or any off brand)
1/4 cup sugar
2 large ripe bananas
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh blueberries

The ingredients!

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
-Start by combining flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
-In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork until they are gooey and liquid-like.
-To this bowl, add sugars, egg whites, vanilla, and Greek yogurt.
-Whisk everything together until there are no lumps.
-Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.
-Fold in the blueberries.
-Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and distribute evenly.
-Bake 50-60 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Perfect combination

This is a great dish to bring to a brunch, bake for a new neighbor, or just enjoy with that morning coffee.

Question of the Day

Do you prefer flavored or regular coffee?

I'm definitely a flavored coffee girl. My all-time favorite would have to be Buttery Caramel by Archer Farms (Target brand). I drink it straight up, no sweeteners or cream necessary! Granted, there are days where normal coffee hits the spot, but those days are not regularly reoccurring.
