Extra-Moist Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt, Chocolate Chips and Walnuts

Super soft and extra moist banana bread made using just ONE bowl
Loaded with chocolate chips and crunchy walnuts

This banana bread is all you could ever ask in a banana bread. And the one recipe you'll ever need when you have some leftover spotty brown bananas on the counter. 

It's super soft and extra moist. 

It's packed with chocolate chips and walnuts, but you can simply omit or replace with your favorite add-ins. 

It's simply made in a few minutes using just one bowl and a hand mixer (or fork/whisk also work just fine), so clean up couldn't be any easier.
