Dry Ingredients (volume measurements in the Recipe Notes below):

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt (light Greek yogurt would probably work as well)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large very very ripe bananas (about 350-360g in weight minus the peels)


  • Preheat oven 350 deg F (180 C).
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Mash ripe bananas or process in a food processor. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, eggs, maple syrup, and vanila extract and beat well with a whisk.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well with a whisk.
  • Mix the mashed bananas into the batter.
  • Pour the batter into a parchment- lined loaf pan.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before slicing.


  • Volume Measurements:
    • 1 1/4 cup + 1 tsp brown rice flour
    • 3/4 cup + 1 tbs + 1 tsp tapioca starch
    • Please note that gluten-free recipes work best with weight measurements because they are more precise than volume measurements. Gluten-free baking requires more precision and can be less forgiving than baking with regular all-purpose wheat flour.
    • These volume measurements were made from spooning each of the flours into the measuring cups/spoons (so they are not packed) and leveling them off.
    • The volume measurements are approximate. Make slight adjustments to the recipe as needed, adding a bit more Greek yogurt or a bit more tapioca starch or brown rice flour to achieve the correct dough consistency.
  • Really ripe or over-ripe bananas are important for this recipe. If your bananas are only perfect for eating fresh, your banana bread will not be as strong or as sweet.
  • The texture of this bread is not as crumbly as other breads. It is very moist, but also a little squidgy.
  • Keep it in a container in the fridge for up to 1 week. It tastes great cold! You can also heat a slice for 10 seconds in the microwave to warm up.
  • Top with chocolate chips for an extra bit of sweetness!
