Happy new year everyone! I'm back in the kitchen again and as you guys saw on Instagram today, I was getting my bake on and preparing lots of snacks including this healthy honey and oat banana bread for the week ahead.
It's a one-bowl wonder (my favourite kind of recipe!) and lasts forever wrapped up in the freezer. You can put it straight into the toaster and into your lunchbox for it to thaw out by morning tea time.
Healthy Honey & Oat Banana Bread
2 large very ripe bananas, mashed (plus one extra sliced in half for topping)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup rolled oats (plus extra for topping)
1 3/4 cup wholemeal spelt flour
1/4 cup milk of choice
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (fan-forced). In a bowl combine honey and oil with a whisk. Add eggs, milk and bananas and combine.
Add all remaining ingredients and combine well.
Pour batter into a baking paper lined loaf pan.
Top with extra banana and oats.
Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean (depends on your loaf tin size).
Cool in tin for 15 minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack until it's cool enough to be easily handled.
Slice, wrap and freeze! Or enjoy right away!
