Perfect-4-Breakfast Banana Bread

With yogurt, bananas, whole wheat, raisins/chocolate chips, what more can you ask from a perfectly nutritious breakfast? It even keeps well too– for about 5 days refrigerated. I’m having these for breakfast this week! The original recipe is from greenlightbites. Roni, the blogger, is incredibly good in giving recipes makeovers to make them healthy. I really admire her for that!

Here‘s the original recipe. I changed it a little as some of the ingredients are not readily available here in Singapore and others because I don’t have them.
