Ingredients in Simple Banana Bread Recipe:
Bananas– bananas with spots are best. You can even use bananas with large spots-even bananas that are almost black in this best ever banana bread. The recipe calls for 3 bananas but I find it best to mash and measure the bananas to make sure you have the correct amount.
Sugar– regular granulated sugar works great.
Greek Yogurt– Any brand will do. Use vanilla or plain greek yogurt. I like to use non-sweetened greek yogurt.
Butter- Use melted butter, salted works great
Eggs– large eggs work great
Soda– baking soda, the regular Arm and Hammer baking soda works great.
Salt- Sea Salt is best.
Vanilla Extract– Pure vanilla extract
Flour- all-purpose flour, bleached or unbleached work great.

- 4 cups Flour all-purpose
- 1 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Salt
- 3 cups Ripe Bananas mashed, or about 6 ripe bananas
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 4 Eggs lightly beaten
- 12 Tablespoons Butter or 1 1/2 sticks of butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Spray (2) 9 by 5 inch baking pans with non-stick cooking spray
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
In another bowl combine the mashed bananas, vanilla, greek yogurt, eggs, and melted butter. Stir until combined.
Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and mix gently until combined. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pans. Make sure the batter is spread evenly between the two pans.
Bake in a 350 degree, preheated oven, for 50-65 minutes. Bake until the banana bread is golden brown and when you insert a toothpick, it comes out clean.
When you take the bread out of the oven, turn the pan on its side and tease the loaf out of the pan. Cool on a wire rack until ready to eat. Enjoy!
