How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Place sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl, and beat with a mixer at medium speed for about 1 minute or until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist. Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
