1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I add my home ground flour here)

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 350ยบ 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.
