Oatmeal Banana Bread

IMG_0628Hello there– Looking for something warm and comfy for chilly winter breakfast?  I think this banana bread will do the trick.  Just pretend it’s your morning bowl of oatmeal with all those oats tucked inside.  I like it sliced and toasted in the toaster oven–  with a mug of steamy tea for breakfast.  I hope you do too.

2 bananas
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup walnuts, chopped
a little more oats to sprinkle on top

Smash the bananas to a pulp in the bottom of a mixing bowl.  Then stir in the sugar, oil and eggs.  Next mix in the oats, flour, baking powder, salt and walnuts.

Scrape the batter into one standard bread pan or two smaller pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  Sprinkle a handful of oatmeal on top.

Pop the bread into a 350 degree oven for 30  to 35 minutes.  Let it cool a few minutes to take it out of the pan and slice it up.  Homey good!

  1. HI Rhonda…I have some really ripe bananas aching to jump into this recipe but I need some clarification on the baking powder…is it 1/3 tsp. or 3/4 tsp. or 1 tsp. Hope you are having a blast with the girls but try not to neglect your blogging fan club too too long 🙂

    • Hey Brenda–
      It’s 3/4 tsp.!! I’m a proof reading failure– so thanks for sticking with me. Hope you like it. I’m getting back to the blog soon– been tied up with my mom’s hip surgery and little one of my own and more… Sometimes life just gets too crazy. but thanks for asking– you are always an encouragement.
