Banana Oatmeal Bread

Posted on March 14, 2014
Good Morning, Everyone! I hope you’ve been having a good week, and if not… the weekend is almost here! But before it starts, I have a recipe to share with you! I LOVE banana bread, and have tried lots of different recipes, some of which I’ve shared with you here (like THIS Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt that’s still my favorite, or THIS Chocolate Banana Bread)! Here is another recipe to add to the banana bread recipe collection – Banana Oatmeal Bread! It’s super moist, not overly sweet, and makes for a great snack or breakfast!
*Makes 1 loaf*
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup plus 2 tbs rolled oats
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (or regular plain yogurt)
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas (about 1 cup), mashed
Optional: chocolate chips, chopped nuts
1. First, preheat your oven to 350 deg F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper (or grease your loaf pan). In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla extract, until you have a smooth, yellow mixture. (Add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste, I usually try to use less sugar, and if the bananas are super ripe, they will naturally add a lot of sweetness!)
2. Next, sift in the flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon. Stir well until all the ingredients are well combined. In a small bowl, combine the mashed bananas and yogurt, then add in 1/4 cup of oats and mix the batter well.
3. Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan, and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbs of rolled oats. Bake for about an hour, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, and let cool in the pan before slicing. (*Note: if the bread is getting too brown while it’s baking, cover it with some foil to prevent it from burning.)

Happy Baking, Everyone!

    Too funny! I totally made this the other day, I had 8 bananas left over I went to the online cookbook {aka pinterest} and found this recipe. It was delicious, especially with a little nutella on top. 🙂 YUM, great recipe Maria!

    Looks SO good! Visited with a sweet friend (almost celebrating her 90th birthday) and she served banana bread and tea. I loved every minute with her 🙂

    I’m always interested in banana bread recipes that don’t call for buttermilk and I’m so glad I can add this to my list. We’re huge greek yogurt fans at my house so I’m looking forward to trying this.
