So tasty and relatively good for you. I eat a square of it for breakfast with a little bit of yogurt and I feel spoiled!! Sometimes I use slightly less sugar (1/2 c)and it's still fabulous. Would also be good with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- 1 1⁄4 cups quick oats
- 1 cup flour
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup over-ripe banana
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 1⁄3 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup nuts (optional)
- Combine dry ingredients (and nuts if desired, I like sunflower seeds)in a large bowl.
- Mix together until smooth: beaten egg, banana, carrot, melted butter, peanut butter, vanilla, and lemon juice.
- Add this to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
- Pour into a greased 8x8-inch square pan.
- Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done.
- NOTE: Depending on the oven you may want to try 350°F.
this was an awesome bread recipe !!!!my family loved it...
This was very interesting. I give it 5 stars because I like the health adaptability of the recipe. The taste if very good too. My husband and son gobbled a bunch down when it came out of the oven. That is a very good sign. I changed some things. I used 1 cup ground oatmeal instead of the 1 1/4 cup rolled. I used 1/3 c brown sugar and 1/3c white sugar. I also used 1/2c white and 1/2c wheat flour. I also used 1/2 c carrot and 1/2c chopped zucchini. Walnuts were my choice of nuts. The peanut butter was an interesting, yet healthy add. Great breakfast and snack bread. Thanks for posting. I will be adding this into my "sneaky chef" recipes.
A fantastic recipe! The texture is moist and dense like banana bread and the color is a pretty yellowish color speckled with orange. I had a bunch of bananas about to be thrown away, so I made a double batch of this and divided it between two 13x9" pans. I added a fourth teaspoon of nutmeg to this recipe, and used cider vinegar instead of lemon juice (didn't have any), but 1/2 a tablespoon instead of a whole. I also added extra banana and carrots (I didn't want to waste it), and used brown sugar, which I added with the wet ingredients. This would be fantastic with a little powdered sugar icing or maybe some cream cheese frosting. I will save this recipe!
