My kids love bananas, but oftentimes I buy more than we actually eat. It seems like either we have way too many, or we run out and I have to run to the store again! So when bananas go bad, I simply pull off the peel and throw the banana in a freezer bag in the freezer, and when I get enough I make Greek Yogurt Banana Bread!
For Greek Yogurt Banana Bread, I’ve just taken a basic banana bread recipe (this one from Betty Crocker), and tweaked the ingredients a bit to use Greek yogurt. I hope you like it!
And if you love the idea of using Greek yogurt in your bread recipes, then you’ll definitely want to come back tomorrow when Lucy shares her recipe for Lemon Berry Greek Yogurt Bread.
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup butter (one stick), softened
- 3 large very ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, or whatever you like)
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips (if desired)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan.
- In a large bowl, mix together butter and sugar, then add eggs and mix well.
- Stir in bananas, yogurt and vanilla.
- Then add flour, salt, and soda.
- Add nuts, if desired.

- Cool on wire rack for about 10 minutes, then loosen the sides of the loaf and remove from pan. Continue cooling before slicing.
