Healthy Banana Nut Bread

This is my favorite Banana Bread recipe-not just because it is healthy (that is just a bonus) but because it still taste so good! The recipe is very versatile which I love because you have the freedom to add nuts, chocolate chips, raspberries, different spices or yogurts,or whatever is lying around and it will pretty much always taste good! It is moist enough as it is to have plain but I have always enjoyed my banana bread with a bit of almond butter or cream cheese!
