I seem to always have a few overly ripe bananas residing on my countertop. I typically use them in smoothies, but I also like to try different banana breads. I’ve made the typical banana walnut bread and banana chocolate chip bread, and now banana oat bread. So, if anyone has any others they think I might enjoy, leave me a link! I’d love to hear from you.
Banana Oat Bread
(recipe adapted from Joy the Baker)
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tsp canola oil
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 large bananas, ripe
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients except the sugar.
In a smaller bowl, mash the bananas. Add the oil, eggs and brown sugar and mix thoroughly.
Pour batter into pan and bake 40 to 50 minutes until golden and firm.
Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes.
Turn out and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes. Slice and enjoy.
