2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/3 cup honey (I used agave nectar)
1/3 cup peanut butter (go for natural)
2/3 cup fat free yogurt (I used Greek yogurt for the added health benefits, and cause I like the taste)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon (I add a little more, because I love cinnamon)
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
(I added 2 tsp of flaxseed for the additional fiber benefits and cut out the 1/4 tsp of salt)
