I'm a big fan of oatmeal, and a big fan of bananas, so I've combined the two to make a delicious and healthy banana oatmeal bread, which makes a sweet snack.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbs canola oil
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
