Oatmeal Banana Bread

Certain pastries might as well be considered a breakfast staple. Banana bread is one of them. With the subtle sweetness from the bananas and the nutty undertones from the oats, it pairs well with pretty much everything. Let’s not kid ourselves; it’s hard to beat a warm and comforting slice of banana bread. 

Made with simple ingredients

It’s also made with simple ingredients that you probably already have! You’ll be able to easily whip it up and get back to enjoying the rest of your day. 

One of the first things you’ll need is oat flour, which you can buy in stores or make your own! Then some ripe bananas, vanilla extract, coconut oil, and a handful of seasonings.

Substitutions are allowed

You won’t need anything obscure and there’s plenty of easy substitutions if you’re looking for variety. That’s right, this recipe can also be vegan. Substitute the eggs for flax eggs or egg replacer and use plant-based milk, simple as that.

Feel free to incorporate walnuts or chocolate chips to make it special. No judgment here. 

How Long Does It Take?

You’ll be happy to know that making this banana bread only takes 10 minutes of prep and about 50 minutes to bake. You’ll want to wait for it to cool down completely before eating it but that means leaving it on the counter for a couple of hours.

If you have the patience, leave it in the fridge overnight. You can warm it back up the next day and it’s less likely to be crumbly.

Enjoying Your Oat Flour Banana Bread

Although oatmeal banana bread is ideal for breakfast, you can really have it at any time of the day. It’s a great mid-afternoon snack and it’s also a nice dessert option after dinner (especially with some ice cream!) 

This is also a beginner-friendly recipe. Even if you’re new to baking, it’s difficult to mess this oat flour banana bread up. 

Notes:

  • I blended my rolled oats myself. This is very easy to make and I have a step-by-step direction on how to make it here.
  • The baking time is 50 to 60 minutes but I will suggest checking the bread anywhere from 45 minutes just to ensure that the bread does not over bake – to check for the doneness, simply insert a skewer into the middle of the cake. If it comes out fairly clean, then the bread is done, if otherwise, bake for a little longer.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups oat flour
  • 3 bananas large ripe
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil Melted
  • 2 Tbsp Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup sweetener of choice.

Instructions

  • Start by getting your oven preheated to 350°F
  • Next, combine the oat flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in one bowl.
  • Then, grab another bowl and mash down three bananas. Stir in the sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, melted coconut oil, and cinnamon.
  • Now add your wet ingredients into your dry. Don't overmix just mix till combined.
  • Stir in the milk and leave the mixture to sit for five minutes. This helps the oats absorb all the liquid before baking.
  • Then, grab a loaf pan and line it with parchment paper. Place the mixture in the pan, then place the pan in the oven for 50 to 55 minutes at 350 degrees. Ideally, you will let your bread cool for a few hours before slicing through.
  • That's it! Told you it was simple.
