Old Fashioned Oatmeal Banana Bread Prepare

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Banana Bread Recipe!

Given that the photo of my old fashioned oatmeal banana bread caused a real craze on Facebook, I realized I have to share my recipe for this irresistible pleasure with you.

I have already mentioned several times that I do not like the taste of cooked bananas, which is the reason why I have not made banana bread so far (banana bread recipe is very popular!)

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Banana Bread Recipe

But this time, I decided to experiment a little and actually make the oatmeal banana bread recipe the old fashioned way! To do this, I reached out to my grandma and she searched in her family’s cookbook to find out the way her parents and grandparents have been preparing the oatmeal banana bread, the traditional way.

At home I had two very ripe bananas and I also planned to make almond butter so I decided to make sweet bread from these bananas and spread butter on it. I wasn’t wrong. The taste of bread and butter, when eaten alone, is indescribably good and when they stick together…. eh, songs could be written about that ..

You probably already know my cooking, but let me repeat, bread and butter are vegan, free of refined sugars, lactose and eggs – easy to digest, good for your tummy!

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Banana Bread

  • 2 2 larger, ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup rice malt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1+1/2 cups cups of oatmeal flour
  • 1+1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon carob
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Start making your old fashioned oatmeal banana bread by peeling a banana and grating it. Add rice malt and mash bananas with a kneader or mixer. You should get a mixture without larger lumps.

  2. Add coconut oil and mix well.

  3. Sift the oatmeal flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and carob directly into a bowl with the banana. Using a spatula, mix the dry and wet ingredients until they come together and the lumps disappear.

  4. Transfer the mixture to an oiled mold and place in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes – until the toothpick comes out dry. Your old fashioned oatmeal banana bread is almost done!

  5. When the bread is baked, take it out of the mold and put it on the rack to cool.

By the time my old fashioned oatmeal banana bread was done, I had so much fun I had to continue cooking. Of course, this banana bread is absolutely lovely on its own! But, I decided to add a little extra deliciousness by adding some almond butter on it! And I couldn’t be happier with the results!

The almond butter added a little punchy flavor to the banana bread – a perfect combination for a hungry mouth to feed. What I loved even more about it is that it was so easy to prepare and cook the almond butter – it took no time, yet it was so delicious and absolutely worth the extra steps!

My Almond Butter Recipe For The Oatmeal Banana Bread

This almond butter can be an absolutely wonderful add on to your old fashioned oatmeal banana bread. Follow the steps below to make it.

Almond Butter

  • 200 g almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil ((optional))
  1. It is necessary to peel the almonds from the peel and you will achieve this best by soaking the almonds overnight or in hot water for 2 hours.

  2. Dry the peeled almonds with a paper towel and place on a baking sheet and place in the oven at 150 degrees.

  3. While the almonds are toasting, they need to be shaken and turned occasionally. Toasting time is approx. 50 minutes. But you’ll know best if they’re done when it takes on a golden color.

  4. Remove the toasted almonds from the oven and allow to cool completely. Put the cooled almonds in a multipractice / blender / chopper and mix. Almonds contain fat and should start to release their fat over time so there is no need to add oils. But if you have a weaker mixer / blender / chopper then add a little olive oil for relief.

  5. Mix with occasional breaks to remove the mixture from the mixer wall. At this stage, it takes a little patience and pauses so that the mixer does not overheat. Considering the technical conditions, my butter has small crumbs, ie it is not completely smooth (due to the chopper, which can't do better, or because I actually like to feel crispy pieces), you decide for yourself whether you want a completely smooth spread or small pieces.

  6. Transfer the resulting butter to a clean jar and close with a lid. My recommendation is to use as many almonds as possible to make larger supplies, but also a larger amount helps to get butter as fast as possible.

  7. Finally, add your almond butter to the old fashioned oatmeal banana bread and enjoy the mix!

You can consume butter spread on oatmeal banana bread, but also on its own as a supplement to all dishes. Great for morning porridges, smoothies, ice creams, desserts and savory dishes. Of course, you can eat it “on a spoon”, but do not overdo it “
