For those of us watching our cholesterol, we know how good oatmeal is for us and if you substitute the whole eggs for eggbeaters you will have a healthy bread. Enjoy it for breakfast with your favorite jam, or a snack, or warm a slice in the microwave and put a dollop of Cool Whip on top and eat it for dessert.
I have even added a few extra spices to the mix giving it a little extra flavor.
This morning, for my breakfast, I ate a slice with a spoonful of homemade 'freezer blackberry jam' Yummmm!
Banana Oatmeal bread
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 tsp canola oil
1 large egg(s), beaten
2 medium egg white(s), beaten
3 large banana(s), ripe
1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients. Add oil and eggs; mix thoroughly.
2. In a smaller bowl, mash bananas with a potato masher or fork. Add bananas and oatmeal to batter.
3. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. (I like to put a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan, then all you need do once the bread is cooked, is run a knife around the edges of the pan, and the bread will drop right out)
Pour batter into pan and bake until top of loaf is firm to touch, 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Flip out and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes.
