A healthier banana bread recipe, using whole wheat flour and old fashioned oatmeal! The perfect breakfast or snack bread!
I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a while, waiting for the best time to share it. Given that today is national banana bread day, it seems fitting to finally share it. It’s kind of weird there are so many food holidays. And obviously they’re not real holidays but just fun excuses to celebrate something. There’s seriously one for everything. Even recently… national drink wine day which clearly so many of you were thankful for the reminder shared to Instagram and Facebook. I need to find out if there’s an ‘eat cookie dough’ or ‘eat a cookie’ day because those would be right up there at the top of my favorites, at least this week.
But this bread… it’s perfect for today. Why? Besides the fact that today is national banana bread day, which means you should totally be celebrating and whipping up a loaf today or this week and enjoying for breakfast and snack… Because it’s a healthier banana bread, using whole wheat flour and oatmeal!
It’s a fun change-up from the usual. Seriously, it vanished here. Super flavorful and easy to make. No special equipment is required to prepare this, just a bowl and a spoon or whisk. So what are you waiting for? You need this healthier whole wheat oatmeal banana bread in your life asap.
