A Slice of Banana Oatmeal Bread

Banana Oatmeal Bread

This banana oatmeal bread is perfect for breakfast or dessert. I love serving it warm with a cup of coffee or tea. The combination of the brown sugar and unsweetened applesauce is what brings this recipe over the top!

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups ripe bananas mashed 3 medium bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients


  • Begin by mashing your ripe bananas with a fork. This may put up a fight at first, but I promise they’ll give in!
  • n a bowl, combine your mashed bananas, unsweetened applesauce, buttermilk, dark brown sugar, white granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. These are your wet ingredients.
  • Add in your eggs to the mixture one at a time. Mix until your eggs are incorporated well.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together your flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats. These are your dry ingredients.
  • Fold your dry ingredient mixture very gently into your wet ingredients. You do not want to over mix your banana oatmeal bread batter. Over mixing can impact the texture of your loaf.
  • Transfer your banana oatmeal bread batter to a greased 9×5 inch loaf pan. You may use baking spray, butter or even parchment paper to ensure your banana oatmeal bread does not stick to your loaf pan.
  • Place your banana oatmeal bread into a preheated oven at 350 F degrees.
  • Bake your bread for 60-65 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the middle comes out dry. There might be a couple of crumbs clinging to it, but that’s fine. As long as the skewer is not wet with batter, then your banana oatmeal bread is ready.
  • Allow your banana oatmeal bread to cool completely before serving.
