I was going through a few blogs the other day and saw this recipe on What Smells So Good and decided to make it. I had a couple of stalks of rhubarb that were begging to be used. The bread is very moist. The combination of bananas and rhubarb seems to work. I did add banana Dulce De Leche to the middle as well. It called for flaxseed, since I did not have it I used oatmeal and also I changed the yogurt to sour cream. This version will have a bit more fat in it I am sure.
