Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Hearty Oatmeal Banana Bread

I love baking with bananas! 

Thank goodness! I seem to never run out of overripe bananas! 

Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Hearty Oatmeal Banana Bread is a favourite.

Over ripe bananas are perfect for baking with the added benefit of lowering the amount of fat needed and turning out deliciously moist treats.

For this recipe, I increased the fibre by using all whole wheat flour and a touch of flax meal.  I love it’s dense, hearty, moist texture.

I have been baking this bread since 2003. With the exception of the last couple of years as I misplaced the recipe. Oops! Boy, did I miss it!

This recipe was adapted from Canadian Living Magazine, November 2003.

  1. I just found your blog and I LOVE it. It’s so great to hear about wonderful people like you who won’t let intolereaces get them down. Keep it up!

    This bread looks awesome. Do you think I could sub applesauce or more banana or a combo for the oil for a lower fat version? Thanks! 😉

    • Thank you! I would think that you could sub either the applesauce or more banana…would you be needing to replace all the oil? Let me know what you come up with. ~ Susan H.
