Instructions

Turn those overripe bananas into a mouth-watering masterpiece with this easy and (fairly) healthy Banana Bread with oatmeal recipe! It's moist, sweet, and oh-so-delicious. It's the perfect treat for breakfast, snack time, or as a sweet after-dinner dessert. And the best part? You only need a few simple ingredients and it's a breeze to make.

Trust me, once you bake a loaf of this yummy bread, it'll quickly become a family favorite and you'll be whipping up batches on the regular. So, let's get our bake on!

Step 1
Preheat your oven to 160°C (320°F) and grease your loaf pan with a little drop of neutral oil. I also like to line the bottom of the pan with a piece of baking paper, but this is optional.

Step 2
Mash the bananas with a fork in a small bowl.

Step 3
Mix the oil, sugar, and eggs in a large bowl. Whisk this until everything is homogeneous and incorporated. Then mix in the mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and greek yogurt.

Step 4
Now add the dry ingredients: flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and spicemix. Only wait with the optional ingredients like nuts, coconut, and cranberries. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until you have a smooth batter.

Step 5
Now it's time to stir in your optional ingredients and pour the batter in your loaf pan.

Step 7
Bake for about 60 minutes and until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove the banana bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chefs tip
"This is the perfect base recipe for guaranteed success. Add pecans and cranberries or dark chocolate and coconut shavings for variation. The options are endless and it is a good way to get rid of your over-ripe bananas that are lying around in your kitchen."
