Breakfast Banana Nut Bread
¼ C Butter, room temp (sometimes I use 1/2 Cup, or one stick)
½ C Brown Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
1 C Oatmeal (uncooked)
4 – 5 Ripe Bananas
1 t Vanilla
1 ½ C Flour
2 t Baking Powder
½ t Baking Soda
½ t Salt
½ C Nuts, chopped (optional)
Cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg and mix well. Then add oatmeal, bananas, and vanilla. Mix well.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to first ingredients and stir only long enough to moisten the batter. Add nuts if necessary, stir gently.
Grease loaf pan, pour in batter. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour or until bread tests as done (I usually check after 45 minutes).
I often bake these in mini loaf pans and they take approx. 30 min. in my oven.
Cool before eating if you can wait... that doesn't always happen at our house. It's actually better the next day.
