1 cup of whole wheat flour (compared to 2 cups of white)
1 cup of white ( I would of actually used oat flour but didn't have any..)

4 bananas (compared to 3)
1/2 cup of Greek vanilla yogurt (compared to buttermilk/sour cream)
1 tsp of vanilla
sliced almonds (optional)
bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
