If I had a banana tree it would save me so many trips to the store! Plain, dressed up in a protein shake, or as the main event in banana bread, I just can’t get enough of this fruit.
So this recipe isn’t overnight oats, banana bars, or even banana bread but at the same time, it’s all of these things. Held together like bars but with the consistency of overnight oats, and the taste of banana bread, it’s a new take on an old staple.
My banana “bread” has newbie flavors like oats and sunflower seeds. Add banana slices to the top for a pretty look and a truly banana-y banana bread!
Banana Oat “Bread”
- 3 bananas (one for the top)
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup maple syrup and honey (or one or the other)
- 1 cup oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mash the (2) bananas and add the egg, vanilla, maple syrup, honey, and mix. Add the oats, baking soda, sunflower seeds, and cinnamon.
Place mixture into a buttered bread pan and sprinkle additional cinnamon onto the top. Slice the last banana and place the slices on top. Cook at 350 degrees for 3o minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
