Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread

The secret ingredient for a moist chocolate chip banana bread? Greek yogurt! This banana bread is incredibly moist, flavorful, and loaded with chocolate chips. 


1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 large eggs, at room temperature

⅓ cup melted coconut oil, or canola oil

½ cup FAGE Total 2%

⅓ cup pure maple syrup

1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 medium, very ripe bananas

¾ cup dark chocolate chunks

Flaky sea salt, for topping (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or melted butter. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash 3 of the bananas. Whisk in the oil, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and FAGE Total Greek yogurt.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Fold until just combined, being careful not to overmix (some lumps are okay!). Lastly, fold in the chocolate chunks.
  4. Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan. Split remaining banana in half, lengthwise, and place at the top of the batter.
  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from pan. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired.
