For the Banana Bread: 

  • ½ Cup butter, melted

  • ½ Cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 TSP vanilla extract
  • 1 and ½ Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 TSP baking soda
  • ½ TSP salt
  • ½ Cup vanilla greek yogurt

For the Brown Sugar Cinnamon Crumble Mixture:

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 TSP ceylon cinnamon or regular cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your baking pan. Spray a 9” rectangle baking pan with non-stick spray, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, melted butter. Once melted add your white sugar and brown sugar then mix with a hand mixer.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and followed by your vanilla extract. Mix again.
  4. Sift in your flour over the butter and sugar mixture, followed by the baking soda, ceylon cinnamon and salt. Mix again with your hand mixer until everything is combined.
  5. Mash your bananas in a separate bowl and add to your batter. Next, add your vanilla greek yogurt to the batter and mix again. Add your mini semi sweet chocolate chips and mix again.
  6. Make your brown sugar cinnamon crumble mixture and set aside.
  7. Add your banana bread mixture one layer at a time. So, pour about 1/4 -⅓ of the mixture into your prepared baking pan, then sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture over. Repeat until you have filled your pan. There should be 3 layers.
  8. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar over the top and cover completely. Sprinkle some extra mini chocolate chips on top as well before you place in the oven. You want the top to be sprinkled with extra brown sugar cinnamon crumble so it become nice and caramelized and crisp on top.
