Blueberry Greek Yogurt Banana Bread

I am really enjoying baking with fresh berries right now...with the farmer's markets in full effect and the summer flying by...there's no better time to enjoy!  I saw this recipe a couple weeks ago and have had it bookmarked for a lazy Sunday morning.  The idea of creamy yogurt and bananas mixed with blueberries sounded absolutely dreamy!


And trust me, this turned our dense, moist, and ultra flavorful...definitely worth making!  I might recommend adding some lemon zest if you give it a try.

Recipe from Daily Garnish:
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Start by combining flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork until they are gooey and liquid-like.  Add eggs, sugars, and vanilla.  Add a dollop of Greek yogurt, about 1/2 cup.  Whisk until everything is well combined and there are no lumps.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.  At this point, fold in the fresh (or frozen) blueberries!  Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and distribute evenly.

Pop into the oven and bake for one hour, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.   Transfer to a cooling rack and (try to) let the bread cool for at least ten minutes before slicing.


 I topped mine with blackberry jam...YUM!

Hope you enjoy!  Bon Appetit!
