Chai Banana Bread

I found this recipe in a magazine on Sunday  morning.  In our 4-year-old SS class we were cutting out pictures of our favorite foods, and while helping the children find pictures of food, I found this.  I did adapt it a bit, but the recipe above is what I actually made, except that I doubled it.  I think the kids liked it, because one whole loaf was gone before it even had cooled.  I did use peach yogurt, because that is all we had.  Worked fine.  I think this may be our new favorite banana bread recipe.  Let me know what you think.
