Double Banana Bread (Made with Chobani Greek Yogurt & Coconut Oil!)

There are two things I always enjoy baking: cookies and banana bread. I’ve made so many different recipes of each and still get excited to find new ones. As far as banana bread goes, I like mine to be light, healthy, and moist. This one right here, my friends, is all of that and more. Can banana bread be fabulous? Because this loaf is. The addition of the banana Greek yogurt lends a tender and moist loaf and the coconut oil gives it a richer, nuttier flavor.DSC_0580

The only downside to baking this is that it won’t last long. I guarantee that you, and anyone you share it with, will gobble it up before you know it. Heck, go ahead and ripen up extra bananas and make two loaves. Thank me later.

Shout out to Chobani. Thanks to this wonderful company’s shipment of their new banana and pear yogurts, I was inspired to make this bread.IMG_3632

  • That looks really good, I might have to make it. I haven’t had the banana Chobani yet but the pear one is delicious :). Only problem is I have to wait until I make it to buy the bananas and yogurt, my husband will gobble them up otherwise.

  • OOoooo…double banana?? Yum! You can never have too much. I love the idea of using Greek yogurt in baking, too. Maybe that is part of the reason why that bread looks so deliciously moist!

  • Yay, I was just getting ready to make banana bread! excited to try it this way.

  • You had me at coconut oil. 🙂

  • Banana bread is definitely my favorite bread to bake! I absolutely love it. The only downside is the wait… my recipe is best if I let it sit at least a day before I cut it. I usually substitute vegan butter because my boyfriend is allergic to dairy; I like that yours uses coconut oil, but any suggestions for greek yogurt substitute? Looks fantastic!

  • YUM! Slap some pb on there and perfection! I love chobani and LOVE the people over at chobani, they are amazing!

    Happy Thursday love! <3

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles

    Looks amazing! I adore banana bread…but I always feel the need to throw some chocolate chips in there :-p

  • Nichole

    You know I have a major obsession with banana bread? I’ll have to investigate this recipe post haste!

    I’ve been looking for a good banana bread with the new Chobani, I’ve been wanting to making one, but haven’t found one yet. I will be making this recipe this week. And OMG…Can I please tell you what was in your ‘around the web’ link at the bottom of you post…

    Awkward. Haha!!!

  • Delicious!!! I love banana bread too. I was thinking I needed to bake something Easter-ish for this weekend, but I might just do this instead. Who cares if it’s not pastel colored or egg shaped. I sometimes like to include chocolate chips or walnuts in my nana bread, but it’s not a must. I’m always doing something different!

  • Meg @ A Dash of Meg

    What a great recipe, sweetie! Definitely making this one!

  • I so wish I could have read this two days ago. I made banana bread the other night and it’s dry as hell. Will try this recipe next time!

  • April Johnson

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin

    I love banana bread too and I’m always making a new recipe every time I bake it. This one looks awesome. I’ve never tried using coconut oil in mine before!

  • kerr

    Yum! My friend made peach cake last night that was delish.

  • I love using coconut oil in banana bread too, and I always always add walnuts! I’ve been obsessed with experimenting with greek yogurt in my baking lately, but I haven’t had bananas around to try it in banana bread! This is totally next on my list.

  • Kristen Prusak

    Made this yesterday and the boyfriend and I both love it! I had a piece warmed up with peanut butter on top for breakfast today 🙂

  • This looks SO delicious! I definitely just pinned it! 🙂

  • Thuy

    I just made this! I used a lemon Greek yogurt because I had that on hand and coconut sugar instead and it turned out wonderful!! Thanks!

  • Britney

    Can you do muffins?

  • Melissa

    This was so good! I didn’t have banana chobani so I used the plain kind and it was still delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Patti

    have you made this with whole wheat flour? I try to avoid white flour…

  • Sweetarte

    I’ve made this recipe twice now and it is by far my favorite of all of the banana bread recipes I’ve tried. You’re right about it not lasting, my kids had four slices…. Each!!!! Thank you for the recipe

    • that is so awesome to hear!! my little brother loved it a ton too!

  • Patti

    This is my second loaf this month and it came out even better!! I made it with 1 cup wheat 1 cup white flour. I used 3 very ripe bananas because I wanted even more flavor this time. This is my favorite recipe now!!!

    • oh my gosh, i love it!! so glad you liked it. now i really need to make this again! 🙂

  • Brittany Greer

    This is baking in the oven as we speak. I didn’t have the banana flavored yogurt so I just used plain. I used coconut oil (for the first time ever) but it hardened when I added the eggs and yogurt to the bowl. I was not expecting that, but after a quick google search I found out that’s normal when the oil gets cold. I tried to break it up as much as I could when I stirred, so I’m hoping it turns out okay. By the way it’s making my kitchen smell right now, I’d say it’s going to be fricking delicious 🙂

  • Shanna

    I made this last night and am eating it for breakfast all this week. IT’S AMAZING!

    • thank you!!

      • Shanna

        My husband even loved it and trust me that was shocking! I don’t usually like banana bread because the banana taste is so overwhelming but this was perfect. I couldn’t find Chobani banana Greek yogurt so I had to use Oiko’s banana cream Greek yogurt. Yum!
