This Baked oat banana bread is a healthier spin on the traditional banana bread recipe. It’s made with oat flour (ground oats) instead of wheat and it is delicious!
This recipe requires few ingredients and most likely you already have them.
- Ripe bananas
- Rolled Oats
- Baking Powder
- Xylitol or sweetener of choice (stevia, monk fruit or regular sugar)
- Chocolate Chips (optional)
If regular banana bread is your thing, check out my classic banana bread recipe.
Your bananas should be pretty soft. The riper they are the sweeter your bread will be, however I like to add a bit of sweetener. Since I’m keeping things healthy I used xylitol.
I have a few oat recipes here on the blog because I eat oatmeal pretty much everyday. If you like to add protein to your oatmeal check my post on how to make protein oatmeal not grainy, it is life changing!
WHAT KIND OF OATS TO USE
I personally love rolled oats. They are easy to cook and I love their texture, but for this recipe it doesn’t matter because we are going to use a food processor or blender to grind the oats into a fine powder.
