Banana Protein Bread

I stumbled across a recipe on Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread on Daily Garnish. I loved the idea of using greek yogurt in it to boost the protein level but not happy about some of the other ingredients. In true me fashion, I changed it around 🙂 The result was extreme yumminess. The picture below was made with a vanilla coconut greek yogurt and sprinkled with a teaspoon of shredded coconut on top to compliment it. I can’t wait to pick strawberries and make this bread with fresh picked berries! I didnt have blueberries on hand so I added more banana. It’s easily changed up to accommodate any fruit.
