Banana Oat Bread

Banana Oat BreadWith a fickle toddler, we always have bananas in various states of ripeness hanging around our house. I often throw the super ripe ones in the freezer for banana bread, banana peanut butter oat muffins or banana applesauce oat muffins.  Obviously, the toddler loves the banana oat combo, so I decided to try it out in a bread version.  I served it at our playgroup and every slice was devoured.  Apparently, the banana oat combo is a huge hit among all toddlers, not just my own.  The recipe is from The Motherload and next time, I am going to add extra oats on the top like she did, it looks so nice.
Banana Oat Bread

1 ½ cups flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup mashed banana
1/3 cup buttermilk
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine banana, buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and eggs in a small bowl or measuring cup. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, in the pan, for about 15 minutes (I left mine in longer and it was fine). Remove the bread from the pan after 15 minutes and cool thoroughly on the rack.

I bookmarked this recipe for when I get back to the states! I recently discovered that I like banana bread and I think the banana oat combo sounds wonderful!
