Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

(My entry into the Stonyfield Farm Na Moo Ste Sweepstakes for bloggers.)


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripened, mashed bananas
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup plain Oikos Greek Yogurt
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 375*F.  Lightly spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray.  Be sure to grease all the way up the sides of the pan and up around the middle tube.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs (mixing briefly after each one), and vanilla extract together until fluffy.  Add mashed bananas.
  4. Add flour mixture slowly, mixing lightly after each addition. Do not overmix.
  5. Add Oikos Greek Yogurt.
  6. Pour into bundt pan.
  7. Bake for about 38-44 minutes.  Mine took precisely 41 minutes. 🙂
  8. Remove from oven and let sit for several minutes.
  9. Place a plate over the pan and, using mitts, turn the bread onto the plate.  It should come out easily.

Fresh out of the oven:

Such a handsome banana crust.

  1. Hi Sam,

    I just found your blog through Kath’s, and I look forward to following it!

    This bread looks amazing– I bet the yogurt makes it super-moist. Yum!

  2. Thanks, Anna. 🙂 It was awesome and terrifically moist. D asked for walnuts next time so that’s a future addition to the recipe.
