I hate to say it and I hope I don’t sound ridiculous… I have made way too many banana breads during quarantine. Seriously, at least one per week. But honestly, no complaints over here! This morning I decided I wanted to switch up my classic banana bread, so I decided to put a little something special on top to really take this banana bread to a new level.
Have you made a banana bread yet with all your free time that you have been gifted by COVID-19? No? Okay, well let me change that for you real quick.
I present to you, pretty much every flavor you could ever dream of in one loaf of bread. Banana, oatmeal, peanut butter, cinnamon, chocolate, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. What more could you ask for in a quarantine dessert? Thankfully, this recipe is healthy enough that you could even eat this for breakfast without feeling like you’ve already messed up your eating for the day. Made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, let’s make this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread your next baked treat!
For the batter…
- 1 cup of oat flour (you can buy this in the store or you can make your own by pulsing rolled oats in a blender)
- 1 mashed ripened banana
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- A pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup of melted peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of raw oats
- 1/2 cup of coconut sugar
First, start off by mashing up your ripened banana, then slowly start adding in your ingredients. Mix until well combined. Pour into a lined loaf pan (either coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper).
Cinnamon Crunch topping details:
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/3 coconut sugar
- 1 tbs of coconut oil
Sprinkle the cinnamon crunch topping on top of your banana bread batter. Bake at 325F for 40 minutes or until golden!
