Healthy Oatmeal Banana Bread Recipe

Fruity bananas and hearty oats make this oatmeal banana bread a delicious breakfast or midday snack. Serve warm with butter or softened cream cheese!  


– 4 overripe bananas peeled and mashed (about 2 cups) – ½ cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream – ½ cup granulated sugar – ½ cup lightly packed light brown sugar – ½ cup vegetable oil – 2 large egg – 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract – 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour – 1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats plus more for topping – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1 teaspoon baking soda – ¾ teaspoon kosher salt – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon – Coarse sugar for topping optional


Warm the oven up to 350°F. Line a 9-by-5-by-2-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and grease it.  

Step 1

Mix mashed bananas, yoghurt or sour cream, sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a large basin with an electric mixer until blended.  

Step 2

Whisk the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.  

Step 3

The dry ingredients should be mixed into the banana mixture until it is just smooth. Put the batter into the pan that has been made.   

Step 4

You can add more rolled oats if you want to.  In a hot oven, bake the loaf for 70 to 75 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.  

Step 5

After 10 minutes of cooling in the pan, use the parchment paper to lift the bread out and place it on a cooling rack. Let it cool all the way down before cutting it.
