Banana Bread

What do you do when life gives you a ton of bananas going bad? Make banana bread. At least that's what I did. Friday was a great day to be inside baking. It was 50 and raining and I got off work early because one person did something well so the whole division got rewarded. Seems kinda silly but I'm not complaining. I came home and baked this and some Colcannon potatoes which will be on here soon! Meanwhile I had the weather channel (which I normally refuse to watch) on in the background so I could see what was going on with the weather. Yesterday was an epic weather day. Holy ridiculous tornadoes batman! It was unbelievable to look at the radar returns. It just looked like tornadoes could have popped up EVERYWHERE. If this picture below doesn't get you excited you must have serious problems.

Banana Bread
Yield ~1 loaf

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups banana (3 bananas) mashed
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbs vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together flour, wheat flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl melt the butter and add in the eggs, vanilla, and mashed bananas. Then add the liquid mixture into the dry bowl along with the Greek yogurt. Last fold in the walnuts. Pour the batter into your loaf pan and sprinkle the top with oats. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until firm.
