1 Hour Delicious Honey Oat Banana Bread
While I enjoy cooking, I’ve always considered myself more of a baker. I have truly always loved baking – and one of the very first recipes I learned was a banana bread recipe.
Growing up, banana bread was a staple in our house. My dad is a huge banana bread fan, so my mum would make it for him often as a surprise/treat. So, we had it in our house and lunches often and I loved it. Early on, I started helping my mum make it because I wanted to know how to whip up some banana bread myself.
In fact, I can remember many Sundays when we would make banana bread for the week ahead, and I can remember how much I loved opening up my lunch to see a slice of banana bread – it was such a yummy treat.
Banana bread is such a good ol’ classic. While this recipe is a bit of a twist on the classic, this Honey Oat Banana Bread is totally delicious and reminds me of that old favourite.
This bread is a bit more of a loaf-style bread and it’s a bit heavier. I slice it up and enjoy it more like I would a piece of bread/toast than a slice or square of banana bread.[easy-image-collage id=7503] [easy-image-collage id=7501]
While this loaf isn’t the classic banana recipe I grew up with, it’s one that I keep going back to – it’s delicious and it’s super, super, super easy to make. We enjoy it for our breakfasts or with a cup of tea.
