Honey Greek Yogurt Banana Bread
The kids and I are totally obsessed with banana bread! We can easily go through a large loaf in a day or two. That is exactly why I make sure to make a healthier banana bread recipe so that we can enjoy it while being quite nutritious. I am so excited to share my Honey Greek Yogurt Banana Bread recipe with you because I know that you're going to love it!

Banana bread with butter
I've loved banana bread my entire life but never liked that the traditional recipe is made with a bunch of sugar and white flour. I knew that I could easily swap the refined flour for my favorite white whole-wheat flour and it works like a charm. If you need a gluten-free flour, you can try the one from Arrowhead Mills®

I also lowered the amount of sugar in this healthier banana bread and used Greek yogurt for a boost of protein, nutrition and to keep the bread moist. You won't notice that this banana bread is lighter than any other one you've tried.

It's the New Year and everyone is wanting healthier foods and this one is perfect! Honey Greek Yogurt Banana Bread makes a great breakfast, snack or even dessert warmed up with some peanut butter on top. Since it is cold out, my daughter and I have been enjoying baking in the kitchen and I love finding a more nutritious recipe that we all love that we can make together. It doesn't have to be cookies and cakes to have fun and enjoy baking! Try this bread to help stick to your New Year's resolutions.

The Greek Gods® Honey Greek Yogurt from Walmart works perfect in this recipe. It is rich, creamy and the perfect addition to this banana bread. I love eating this yogurt any way and so do my kids. We love it in a bowl with chia seeds or as a parfait especially. 


This yogurt has no artificial colors or preservatives and is a good source of calcium. Learn more about Greek Gods® Greek Yogurt

I highly recommend doubling or tripling this batch of Honey Greek Yogurt Banana Bread because it freezes really well and I love being able to pull out a loaf at a time and defrost for a homemade treat. It isn't much extra work to make more so I like making extra loaves of banana bread and freezing them for a time when we want more.

I like that banana bread is affordable to make but tastes so delicious. I picked up all of the ingredients for this delicious banana bread at my local Walmart and everything was affordable.
