Add a protein punch (plus extra moisture!) to everyone’s favorite quickbread with a top-rated recipe for Greek Yogurt Banana Bread. I’ve shared dozens of banana bread recipes, from chocolate-swirled and peanut butter-filled to fruit-topped and sprinkle-studded. All of them rely on various ingredients to ensure a moist loaf with plenty of banana flavor.
Often times, it comes down to an ingredient with some sort of tanginess, whether that’s sour cream, cream cheese or even buttermilk.
I’m turning to one of my all-time favorite ingredients to add moisture (and protein) to everyone’s favorite way to use up overripe bananas. Bring on the Greek yogurt!
The yogurt lends a touch of tanginess to the loaf without overpowering the banana flavor. And then it’s up to you to add any type of mix-in, from chocolate chips to chopped nuts or even additional fresh fruit (try blueberries or raspberries for the best results).
