Steps to make Easy Oatmeal Banana Bread


Heat oven and prepare a baking pan


Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease a nonstick 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set to one side.


Process oats


Place 1 cup of old fashioned oats in a food processor or blender and pulse until the oats have reduced to half their size or less.


Add remaining dry ingredients


Add 1¼ cups of all purpose flour, ½ a cup of light brown sugar, ½ a teaspoon of kosher salt, ½ a teaspoon of baking soda, ¼ teaspoon of baking powder and ½ a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Continue to pulse until fully combined, then transfer dry mixture to a large bowl.


Blend bananas


Place 3 large bananas in the food processor and blend until smooth.


Add eggs, vanilla and oil


Add 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 3 tablespoons of oil to the bananas. Continue to blend until completely smooth.


Mix wet and dry ingredients


Pour the banana mixture into the flour and oats mixture. Fold the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Add the walnuts, if using.




Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan and bake in the oven for 45 - 50 minutes. A toothpick inserted should come out clean.




Remove banana bread from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Wrap the banana bread with foil or plastic wrap and store in a cool, dry place until ready to serve.

Adding pumpkin spice and more cinnamon make it a great breakfast bread to serve with coffee or tea.

It wasn't very flavorful like I expected it to be sadly needs a lot more sugar.

I've made this recipe several times and loved it i tossed 1/4 cup of walnuts in instead of 1/3 it and turned the bread into muffins! Took way less time too :)

Tasty but I liked the vegan bread more not sure why cause I'm not even vegan but it taste different compared to this.

My gosh this recipe is the bomb! I made a few mini loafs with it and it isn't too sweet which is exactly what I was looking for.

Not sure what was easy about this it was kinda hard for me to perfect and my bread either burnt or ended up uncooked fully, any tips on what to do next time?..I really want to try this out when made to perfection.
