Banana-Oatmeal Bread

Often times I’ll buy bananas and those suckers will go ripe before I eat them! When this conveniently happens, I place the bananas in the freezer until it’s time for some good, homemade banana bread. I usually go with Aunt Lisa’s recipe but this time around I decided to live on the edge with this Weight Watchers recipe. My co-workers would most likely agree with this decision as the bread was gone before I even got a piece… ENJOY!!



  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp canola oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 large egg whites, beaten
  • 3 large bananas, ripe
  • 1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
  3. Add oil and eggs; mix thoroughly.
  4. In a smaller bowl, mash bananas with a potato masher or fork.
  5. Add bananas and oatmeal to batter.
  6. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  7. Pour batter into pan and bake until top of loaf is firm to touch, 45 to 55 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Flip out and cool on a wire rack for another 10 minutes.

About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
