Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread is a staple in my house. I make this probably 5-6 times a year, and my kids plow through an entire batch in just a day or two. Perfect for on-the-go breakfasts, and after school snacks!

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

Banana bread was probably one of the very first things I ever baked. It is easy to toss together, and always comes out awesome. I’ve been using the same, basic, slightly-tweaked-from-a-family-cookbook recipe for ages, and this is another variation on that.

Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

This one is made with lots of super ripe banana, and dark brown sugar that gives it a rich, sweet, and slightly molassesy flavor that I think works so well with the bananas. Sour cream and greek yogurt keep this ultra-moist too.

Delicious homemade banana bread with a delicious cinnamon swirl!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 4 extra ripe bananas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1.5 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel the bananas and add in the eggs, vanilla, and oil. Mix for about 1 minute on medium speed. Mix in 1 cup of white sugar, 1 cup of dark brown sugar, the yogurt, and the sour cream. Mix until combined.
  3. Stir together the flour and baking soda, mix into the batter for 1 minute.
  4. Pour half of the batter into a prepared bundt pan. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter. Cover with the rest of the batter, and spread gently if necessary.
  5. Bake on the 2nd lowest rack for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Watch carefully! Your bread might take a little less time, or a little more time depending on the oven and your specific pan.
