    @KYLAR_STERN: Yes, your substitutions should work, though they'll be more dense. The instructions should read: Whisk the oil, applesauce, sweetener and eggs together in a large bowl. Stir the bananas and yogurt together in another. Mix 1/3 dry ingredients then 1/2 yogurt into egg mixture (repeat). - 5/18/16

    The directions are slightly confusing where it says to alternately add flour mixture and egg mixture. If you follow the directions as written, you can only add flour mixture "to" the egg mixture. Mine ended up fairly dry and almost chewy. - 7/7/14

    Someone smarter than I at baking, would replacing the 1/2 cup canola oil with 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup olive oil or butter work out here? And also sour cream for plain Greek Yogurt? - 5/12/14
