Banana Bread (with Greek yogurt and coconut oil)

This banana bread is super yummy and is also very healthy which is why it is our favourite banana bread that we have ever made! This recipe makes a moist and flavoursome banana bread and it is also really easy to make. There is quite a lot of cinnamon in this recipe which makes the bread quite flavoursome, but if you are not a fan of cinnamon you can always reduce the amount.

Chobani yogurt
One of the main reasons why this recipe is different from other recipes is because it uses Greek yogurt (we used Chobani but you can use whatever type you have) and instead of using butter, it uses coconut oil which makes it healthier J In order to make the banana bread as good as it can be, try to use ripe bananas because they have more developed flavours and are easier to mash.

Mash the banana using a fork or other kitchen tool
When making this recipe, using banana Chobani yogurt would work best, however Emily and I only had mango flavoured Chobani yogurt and the bread still tasted great.

Banana Bread
1½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
¾ cup  brown sugar
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 large egg
1 large egg white
2 medium bananas, mashed
1 (170 gm) container Chobani banana flavoured Greek yogurt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1.  Preheat the oven to 170C and line a 20cm loaf pan with baking paper.
2.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugar until just combined.
3.  In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut oil, egg, egg white, mashed bananas, Greek yogurt, and vanilla extract.
4.  Slowly incorporate wet mixture into the flour mixture. Lightly stir just until combined. It is ok if your batter is lumpy.
5.  Pour mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. 
6.  Cool for about 20 minutes and serve warm!
