Blueberry Banana Greek Yogurt Bread

Blueberry Banana Greek Yogurt Bread

Whenever I go to Trader Joe's I end up with way too much produce for one person to go through in a week.  So yesterday I realized there was no chance of eating the bananas and blue berries before they went bad, so I decided to do a little baking.


  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour

  • 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, vanilla, and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Whisk until combined (and the lumps are gone).
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.  At this point, fold in the fresh blueberries.
Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and distribute evenly.
Bake for 1 hour or until Golden Brown and toothpick comes out clean
**Mine started getting a little too brown before the inside was cooked so I tented it with tinfoil the
    last 25 min

Don't worry... Laguna Beach/Newport, Italy, and Hoboken still to come on restaurant week!!!


  1. I have the same problem with produce and I hate letting it go bad so I start throwing it in any kind of cereal lol... but this is such a better idea! Can't wait to try it..

  2. This is such an appropriate recipe, considering it's national blueberry month. :)
