A friend of mine said to me recently that I couldn't really be considered a “family food blogger” if I didn't have a banana bread recipe. All kids love banana bread! So, my friend, here is a Clean Little Tummies Oaty Banana Bread to set the record straight and keep up with all the other family food bloggers out there! 

Full of oats and bananas - and only a very little refined sugar - it is a Clean Little Tummy crowd pleaser, as well as a mum (or dad) pleaser. It makes for a delicious afternoon snack at the end of those tired school runs, or a perfect evening snack (whilst blogging, for example!). Over the years I have made all varieties of banana breads, but this one has been declared “THE yummiest” by my two eldest - and they're not ones to hold back the truth! 

Never one to complicate things, this can all be made in a food processor. Yes, you heard me. This is a simple throw-everything-in type recipe, and you're not left with lots of washing up either. I've only recently started doing this, but I now double batch my baked goodies and pop one in the freezer for another day. Why don't you try it too? 

Ingredients:

150g rolled oats & some extra for topping

2 bananas

100g coconut oil

50ml maple syrup

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

125 ml natural yoghurt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp coconut sugar (just for topping so can be omitted)

How to make this delicious Oat Banana Bread:

Pre heat the oven to 180C Fan.

Start by putting the oats into the food processor and blending until they become a fine flour. 

Once you have a fine flour, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined. 

Pour into a lined loaf tin and sprinkle with some oats and a little coconut sugar (you don't have to do this but it does add a nice sweet crunch to the top of the loaf).

Place in the pre-heated oven for about 45 minutes until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.

Slice and serve warm on its own or with butter, or nut butter for a real afternoon treat. 

This will keep well for up to a week in the fridge or slice and freeze ready to pop into lunch boxes.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 

Thank you for reading,

Love From Caroline & The Clean Little Tummies xxxx
