  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (10.625 ounces or 300 grams)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3 very ripe bananas mashed well
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen but unthawed


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 by 5 inch bread pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the butter and sugar. Then whisk in the yogurt, eggs, bananas, and vanilla.
  • Gently add the flour mixture to the liquid ingredients, folding them together until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Gently stir in the blueberries. The batter will be very thick.
  • Pour the batter into the bread pan and bake for 65 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean or with a few crumbs.
  • Let the bread cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack for an hour before slicing.
  • Because of the fresh blueberries, this recipe won't last as long as a traditional banana bread. You want to store this in an air tight clear container and eat within two to three days.
