  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, plus 1 tablespoon for topping
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.

Beat together the butter and sugar using an electric handheld mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until incorporated into the batter. Spoon in the yogurt and mashed banana and beat until combined.

Whisk together flour, 1/2 cup oats, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the flour mixture by scoopful to the batter and beat until combined.

Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of oats.

Bake for 1 hour, until golden and brown. Let cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack before slicing.
