Moist Banana Yogurt Loaf

Moist Banana Yogurt Loaf

We eat a lot of bananas in my home. They are healthy, delicious, and filling. I had some over ripe bananas on hand, and needed to use them before they ended up in the garbage. I made this moist banana yogurt loaf that my husband and son gobbled up! This recipe is extra tasty because the banana flavor is enhanced with banana yogurt. You can prepare this mixture, and make mini muffins, or regular sized muffins as well. This loaf is great on a Sunday morning, with a nice cup of coffee, or tea!


1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup banana yogurt, (I used Trader Joe’s)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 large bananas)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Optional…you may add walnuts, pecans or an other nuts you like to the mix.


Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, set aside. In a large bowl, add beaten egg, brown sugar, canola oil, yogurt, brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk to combine. Next add mashed bananas and stir. Add your flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until well combined. Baking can take anywhere from 40 to 50 minutes. You can insert a toothpick when you feel it looks ready. If the toothpick comes out clean, your banana loaf is ready to go. This loaf is very moist, and dense, so expect that. Hope you enjoy it!
