Banana bread is a staple in our house. It is an easy sweet bread to make when your bananas get riper than you possibly want to enjoy (and it’s a great way for things not to go to waste).  Brown bananas are sweeter too.  We changed this recipe up and made it an oatmeal banana bread.

Adding oatmeal was another way we were able to hide oatmeal in the bread for our kids to try.   They figured it out.

This recipe will make  1 large loaf pan or 3 small loaves.   I prefer to make smaller loaves as you can share them or freeze 2 and eat one.  Freezing the extras allows you to enjoy bread again, without having to bake.  Mini loaves will take about 30 minutes less cooking time.

Once the bread has baked, we like to enjoy a slice with a little pat of butter and a glass of milk.  And oatmeal banana bread is great for breakfast too!
