Container: 9"x5" loaf pan
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Adapted from Recipetips.com
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I add my home ground flour here)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup oatmeal, quick cooking
1/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup bananas, ripe, mashed
Topping: 3 tablespoons white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Add ins: I layer the bottom of the pan with sweetened coconut or 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar or add 1/4 cup walnuts or 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray or butter a loaf pan. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar topping on bottom of pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Stir in the oatmeal.
Add eggs, oil and bananas. Stir until just combined.
If adding blueberries, spinkle a teaspoon of flour over them and jiggle them around to cover. Fold them in the batter.
Bake 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted into center of bread comes out clean. Cool in pan about 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
Wrap tightly in foil or plastic wrap and cool in refrigerator before serving.
