Oaty Banana Bread
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?
150g rolled oats & some extra for topping
100g coconut oil
50ml maple syrup
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!
