I originally wasn’t planning on posting this banana bread recipe so i didn’t take step by step pictures (sorry). However, it turned out so BOMB DIGGITY that i had to share it. This is the banana bread recipe I have been searching for! My Quest began over a year ago (see quest). Im not sure the quest will ever officially be over because I love experimenting with new banana bread, but this is my new go to recipe.
Bonus points- its made with coconut oil and oatmeal!
The funny part- I was making it to get rid of left over ingredients in preparation for the move.
My Perfect Banana Bread
For the bread:
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3) – leave some chunks!
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Coat a bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside. In the bowl mix coconut oil and brown sugar on medium speed until well blended, about 1 minute. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the banana, yogurt, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients- do not overmix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack, then remove and cool completely on the wire rack.read more
