Can I use other flours to make this gluten free yogurt banana bread?

Yes you can. This mix of teff and rice (naturally gluten free flours) provides a good balance of whole grains with a neutral flavor. But especially the teff flour can be replaced by buckwheat flour or quinoa flour, if you like a stronger flavour.

Also, the psyllium husk here is optional, the banana bread will be good even without. However, it makes the bread even softer.
