A New Favorite Banana Bread Recipe (Family Approved) by BB

Well I had four bananas that needed to be used so of course banana bread was needed to be made. I wanted to try a different recipe. I searched Pinterest for a recipe and then of course I manipulated the recipe just a bit to make it my own. I also used what I had in the house. I didn’t want to have to take a trip to the store.

Now with baked goods I always double recipes because if I’m going to do the work I might as well. My family definitely eats it all.


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup greek yogurt (I didn’t have any greek yogurt so I used 2 small containers of strawberry yogurt, turned out amazing)
  • 2/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • optional 1 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup mini M&Ms, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, or anything else you’d like to add


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two bread pans. This recipe makes two loaves of banana bread so you can have each loaf have a different optional add. I made one with blueberries and one with M&Ms.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine bananas, melted butter and sugar and mix until well combined. Add in eggs.
  3. Mix in yogurt and vanilla extract to wet mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine dry goods, flour and baking soda and mix well.
  5. Add flour mixture into wet mixture a cup at a time.
  6. Add in optional items. I split the batter into two pans and then added blueberries into one pan and mini M&Ms into the other. (My kids like chocolate chips in their banana bread but I didn’t have any. The M&M’s were really yummy I must admit)
  7. Bake bread for 1 hour.
  8. And…Enjoy!
