Healthy Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

I’m not sure what it is about back-to-back travel weeks (or in my current case, back to back to BACK travel weeks) that make me crave a slice of Healthy Banana Bread, but it was just about the only thing I could think about the entire flight home from Kansas City last night.

Almost fat free, healthy banana bread with chocolate chips for a little indulgence. The greek yogurt adds protein and keeps the muffins moist. You'll love this recipe! @wellplated

Maybe it’s the predictable, homey comfort that banana bread embodies.

Maybe it’s that my favorite banana bread recipe happens to be a healthy banana bread with yogurt. Since I’m not always on my best eating behavior when I travel (all the name of vacation, of course), I more deeply appreciate a wholesome breakfast.

Maybe it’s the fact that being out of the house automatically means the bananas on my counter have not been eaten, which means they are brown and spotty, which means banana bread.

Maybe it’s the chocolate chips I never can seem to stop myself from adding.
