Extreme Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prep loaf pan – grease with spray, shortening or butter.
  • Prepare streusel topping: Blend dry ingredients together. Add almond extract, then cut in butter until mixture is soft and crumbly. Set aside.
  • Prepare bread batter: In large bowl combine 1 cup of the flour, the sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add mashed banana, almond extract, butter or shortening and milk. Mix with spoon until well blended. Add eggs, remaining flour and oats. Beat until blended. Add apples, walnuts and blueberries and fold batter lightly to distribute. (Be careful not to break berries.).
  • Pour half of batter into prepared loaf pan. Break up and crumble 2 tablespoons of streusel mixture over top, then add remaining batter to pan. Cover with remaining streusel.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 55-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Makes 1 loaf (16 servings) [Oh, who’re we kidding: it makes 1 big serving…].
  • The banana bread is good warm or cold, but do yourself a favor and have a slice about 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven!
