Ingredients Needed

  • Bananas
  • Flour + Baking Soda
  • Brown sugar
  • Greek yogurt
  • Egg + Vanilla
  • For topping: Sugar/Ground cinnamon

Can I Use Regular Yogurt?

Greek yogurt is needed for its texture. Regular yogurt isn’t as thick as the Greek variety and may change the outcome of your banana bread. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use sour cream instead.

Can Any Additional Substitution be Made?

Yes! If you wish, coconut palm sugar can be used in place of brown sugar.

A Note About Topping

I made a small mixture of coarse sugar and ground cinnamon, then, sprinkle it on top of the batter before baking. It’s totally optional, but, does add a nice finishing touch. If you wish to add the topping, mix about 2 tablespoons of white sugar (regular or coarse) with about a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

Make Your Yogurt Banana Bread

  • In a mixing bowl, mix brown sugar and mashed bananas. A quick way to mash your bananas- -potato masher. See the recipe card for the one I like.
  • Mix in remainder of ingredients and mix until just combined. Don’t over mix your batter! A few lumps are OK.
  • Spread batter into a greased loaf pan and sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar topping.
  • Bake!
  • Let your bread cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan. Then, cool on wire rack until you are ready to serve. Serving it warm with a little butter is heavenly. 💛
