Banana Oatmeal Bread is a hearty and filling twist on the classic bread! A delicious addition to brunch or afternoon snacks! This delicious quick bread is so filling and packed with flavor. It almost takes like a soft oatmeal cookie or bar. I’ve already shared my favorite recipe for classic banana bread and a recipe for banana oatmeal cookies. This bread recipe is the perfect combination of the two! It’s soft and delicate and tastes amazing toasted with some melted butter smeared on it. With the addition of oatmeal, it’s also very filling, so a little goes a long way! The best thing is you can store this in an airtight storage container to snack on later.
How to Make Banana Oatmeal Bread
- butter, softened
- sour cream
- vanilla extract
- baking soda
- ripe bananas, mashed
For your wet ingredients, start by adding the softened butter and eggs to the bowl and cream together. Then add the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy. This is the step that you really will appreciate the stand mixer doing all the work. Make sure you mix it for longer than you think. You want it really light and fluffy.
In another small bowl, add the mashed bananas and the milk together. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and blend on low just until combined. Then add 1/3 of the banana/milk mixture and combine. Continue alternating as you add them until they’re all combined, and no streaks of flour remain.
The top might look too well done, but that’s just the way this type of oatmeal bread cooks.
