This time of year I love baking, and especially these Greek Yogurt Banana Bread smaller loaves, because they are easy to give away. The perfect portion for banana-bread-giving!

How do you keep banana bread moist?

You can use 2-3 ripe bananas, and the obvioulsy if you use 3, the moister the bread. Two are good though, with a delicious banana flavor and not too dry! Also adding sour cream or Greek yogurt keeps the bread nice and moist.

Best banana bread tips

  • The riper the bananas are, the better the flavor for this banana bread. We let ripe bananas sit out on the counter, and then pop them in the fridge (to preserve them awhile longer) for baking. There’s never a too-ripe banana!
  • Always use real butter!
  • Some of my readers have substituted the all-purpose flour for almond flour, but we have not tried this yet.
  • You can swap out the Greek yogurt for sour cream, like I did in this recipe. You can also use plain Greek yogurt or vanilla Greek yogurt.
  • Nuts are totally optional. We love walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts for banana bread.
  • Don’t overmix the batter!
