Dairy Free: Banana Oat Bread


As you can see, Brooks loves bananas.  He also loves his carbs, so banana bread is a no-brainer in our house.  I was jealous watching the rest of the family enjoy banana bread while I'm dairy free (while nursing Vance). So I mixed and matched some recipes to create this dairy-free banana oat bread recipe. This does make a very dense bread, so if you are looking for light and fluffy, this is not the right recipe for you.



3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 eggs
1.5 cups loosely packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.5 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup old fashioned oats


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mash up 3 bananas (or have your toddler do so).
  3. Combine the bananas, olive oil, eggs, and brown sugar and whisk until well combined.
  4. Add the flour, cinnamon, and oats to the wet mixture.  Stir until combined.
  5. Bake for 50-55 minutes at 350 degrees. 

I'm always looking for ways to change up recipes since Brooks's tastes change hourly.  How did you remix this recipe to better suit your family?!
