Tropical Banana Bread

I love banana any way shape or form... I make it with all kinds of add ins... with chocolate chips, nuts, strawberries or blueberries in the summer...and to lower the fat content sometimes I add yogurt or applesauce instead of oil....all kinds of ways equal delicious.......and I don't know if your like me I always have bananas that need using up... sometimes I slice them up and put them on a tray and place them in the freezer for making smoothies thick and yummy.... but mostly I make banana bread.  I also have made banana muffins and sprinkle granola over the top of them and bake them...easy, portable and yummy...however you make banana bread as always use what you have and love... Enjoy
