Pistachio Banana bread

I so love anything pistachio.... so I thought what the heck why not make pistachio banana bread....This recipe is super easy to throw together... if you don't like pistachio leave out the almond extract & pistachio pudding mix & use vanilla pudding and vanilla extract for the pistachio...or you can use chocolate pudding mix and vanilla for the flavorings...lots of options to make what you like...all kinds of varieties.......I also used sugar free pudding mix (cause it's what I had on hand) if you have regular use that... **NOTE**  I put 4 small bananas but put what you have...if you only have a couple use them.....Enjoy

Pistachio Banana bread

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup oil
8 oz. lite vanilla yogurt
1 egg
1 small pkg. pistachio instant pudding (I used sugar free)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
1t almond extract
1/2 cup chopped pistachios (optional)
4 small bananas, mashed with a fork (*see note* )

Preheat oven to 350.
In large bowl whisk together sugar, egg, oil, vanilla yogurt, salt, almond extract.  Add bananas and mix well. Add baking powder, flour and pudding mix & chopped pistachios if using.  Mix together and put in greased loaf pan.  Bake for 50-55 minutes.  Let cool 10 minutes and flip out onto plate.  Enjoy
