Who doesn’t love a good banana bread?! While there are so many different versions of banana bread out there (Martha Stewarts will always remain a childhood favorite) they all pretty much have a similar concept: bread made from bananas. Some like to add walnuts, others like to add chocolate chips… I like to add OATS!
Not only are rolled oats delish in baked goods, but they are rich in minerals that aid in healthy skin and hair. They are also packed with fiber which is great for your digestive function and to help keep you feeling full and satisfied.
This bread is jam packed with the beautifying benefits of oats and bananas. This bread is also 100% plant based as well as gluten free.
In place of egg, I used a chia/flax egg. Both chia seeds an flaxseeds are amazing for your hair, skin, and digestion.
I also used a mixture of almond flour and oat flour for this recipe.
4 bananas mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
chia/flax egg (2 tsp chia seeds+2 tsp flaxseeds +4 tsp water)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup almond flour
1 cup oat flour
1 cup oats
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil or avocado oil. In a medium bowl, mix together the coconut oil and coconut sugar. Then add the bananas, vanilla extract and flax egg. In a separate bowl, mix together the baking powder, baking soda,almond flour, salt, and oat flour. Once well combined, mix together the wet and dry ingredients. Then fold in the oats. Once well combined, transfer to your loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a tooth pick goes in and out clean. Let cool and enjoy!
