Last week I was talking with my Mother-In-Law, and she said she was looking for a banana bread recipe on my site. I realized at that moment that I have never posted a banana bread recipe. I always feel I need to share new, unique, different dishes, but sometimes it is fun to share an old family favorite too. This banana bread recipe has been slightly adapted, but is a recipe that has been used by my Grandma and Mom all my life. When my recipe goes missing, or buried in a pile of too many recipes, my Mom or Grandma come to my rescue.
Are you trying to figure out why I have traditional banana bread in a scone pan? Well since I travel, I thought this would be a perfect way to grab-and-go each morning. I did have a little dough left after filling the scone pan, so I used a muffin pan for the remaining batter. Since there is Greek yogurt in the bread, it is best to keep it in the refrigerator.
- ½ cup salted butter, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 6 oz container of Greek yogurt (I used strawberry banana Chobani flavor)
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2⅓ cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease scone or muffin pan with cooking spray. When I use a bread pan, I grease pan with butter and flour surface of pan.
- In mixer or medium bowl – Mix together sugar and butter, add in egg, and Greek yogurt. Then mash bananas and mix in to batter.
- In small bowl – Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Add flour mixture into wet mixture, add in pecans.
- In scone pan – Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on oven.
- In Bread pan -Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on oven.

Do you love banana bread as much as I do? Do you enjoy putting Greek yogurt or sour cream in your banana bread?
