1-Bowl Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

One bowl and 15 minutes of work before this goes into the oven. How easy is that?
I love topping my oatmeal with banana bread crumbles. It’s texture heaven!

Smeared with peanut butter, this made a lovely dessert.
Give this recipe a try! You won’t believe how moist they turn out. πŸ™‚

1-Bowl Greek Yogurt Banana Bread
Yields:Β 12 slices
  • 1Β½ cups flour: I used spelt flour
  • 1Β½ tsp. baking soda
  • Β½ tsp. sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large, overripe bananas (~1 cup mashed)
  • Β½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional add-ins: Β½ cup chocolate chips/raisins/nuts/etc.
Β Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ΒΊF, and lightly grease a 9 x 5 bread pan.
  2. Mash banana in a large bowl.
  3. Add ALL ingredients EXCEPT spelt flour and whisk very well.
  4. Pour flour into wet ingredients.
  5. Mix lightly and carefully with a rubber spatula or spoon to fold the flour in. Do not overmix. Slightly lumpy batter with flour streaks is okay.
  6. Pour the batter into a loaf pan.
  7. Bake 40-45 minutes, until a knife comes out clean and the sides are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing to cool completely.
  9. Serve with nut butter, yogurt, crumbled on oatmeal, or plain. Enjoy!

With tons of banana flavour and subtle sweetness from maple and brown sugar, plus warm notes of cinnamon and vanilla, this banana bread tastes like dessert but is healthy enough for breakfast.


Another incredible dessert – crumbled banana bread on chocolate yogurt (simple Greek yogurt + cocoa powder + maple syrup), with hemp hearts and peanut butter. Oh yum. I could eat this every day!

You are going to love this recipe. I halved the recipe since I had only one banana, and froze half the loaf so I wouldn’t devour it all in a day or two.

I have so many posts in the making that I cannot wait to show you guys!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’m off to write a midterm πŸ™‚

    1. Ahh! Thank YOU! That makes me so happy and I laughed out loud picturing someone trotting around the house declaring their love for banana bread πŸ˜›

      It’s so easy to make, too, and I LOVE that Sunbutter idea!


    1. Wow! Absolutely, whole wheat flour would work very well. πŸ™‚
      Just make sure to measure carefully, because whole wheat flour is a bit denser (heavier) than white. Still, this recipe is so forgiving! Please let me know how it turns out πŸ™‚


  1. I never thought of crumbling banana bread on yogurt! And this recipe fits all my banana bread requirements, if I hadn’t used my last two bananas in making breakfast bars last night I would have done this recipe for sure! I’ll keep this recipe in mind though for next time, I would have loved to pin it if it was available!

    1. BREAKFAST BARS?! With banana? That sounds incredible – are you going to share a recipe soon? That sounds like something I really want to bake πŸ™‚
      Time to stock up on those bananas. You can never have too many, IMO πŸ™‚


      1. hm I actually don’t eat bananas daily, I’d rather have it in baked goods! I eat apples everyday for sure, but the rest varies! (Btw I had greek coconut yogurt and added in cocoa into like you said! AMAZING)

      2. Really? I am surprised. πŸ™‚ Do you put your apples in oatmeal or have it alone? With PB? I am always so curious about what other people eat.
        WOOO! I am so glad you tried it and enjoyed it. It’s practically a daily dessert for me. The protein in the yogurt fills my tummy, and the flavours/textures satisfy my mind πŸ™‚
