  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt vanilla-flavored or plain
  • 1 cup very ripe bananas about 3 bananas, measure by 1 cup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or sub a mixture of white and white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup milk or dark chocolate chips dark are healthier


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a bread pan and set aside.
  2. Beat together the Greek yogurt and smashed bananas (remove the peel and smash with a fork). Add in the eggs one at a time. Beat after each addition.

  3. Beat in the vanilla and brown sugar until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined (over stirring or beating will make for a denser bread).
  5. Gently stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a bread pan and then bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. You may need to cover the top of the bread with a tin foil tent to keep it from excessively browning. (I added a tin foil tent around 40 minutes each time I cooked this bread).
  7. Remove and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan and transferring to a cooling rack.
