[Food Series] Healthy and Delicious Oatmeal Banana Bread

Some people say we are a family of Monkeys because, in our house, we go through bananas at break-neck speed. We just can’t get enough of them! Banana bread is one of my favorite breakfast foods and a must have make-ahead meal when we go camping. It’s also a quick and healthy snack on the trail. This recipe has morphed too many times to count, but feel free to add fun things like semi-sweet chocolate chunks or walnuts. V has a slight nut allergy, so we forgo that for the time being. I love this particular recipe because it’s really flavorful without too much sugar and packed with nutrition. Enjoy!

Healthy and Delicious Banana Bread

2 1/2 cups of Organic Whole Oats
2 very ripe Bananas
1/2 cup Honey
1 cup Yogurt
2 Eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Throw the oats in to a food processor until they become a fine, powdery consistency. Into the oatmeal flour, incorporate the other dry ingredients; nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly begin to blend in the wet ingredients, starting with the applesauce, then add the 2 eggs, yogurt, bananas, vanilla extract and lastly the honey. Scrape the sides of the processor to ensure there aren’t clumps of the dry mixture stuck and all of the banana is pureed throughout. Spray two bread pans with non-stick cooking spray and evenly divide the batter between the two pans. Bake loaves for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
