Bakes Breakfast Recipes Sweet

Oat and Banana Bread

I love Banana Bread, but I’m a lazy baker. The less steps the better and even less washing up.

I wanted a recipe that was easy to make, tastes great and was borderline healthy. I wanted to eat it for breakfast and not feel guilty.

This is a really simple recipe and is in the oven in three steps.


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 120g unsalted butter
  • 150g brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 125g plain flour
  • 100g jumbo oats


  • Small saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Loaf tin, about 20cm long


  • Put the oven on at 180c.
  • Grease the tin and line with a strip of parchment.
  • Melt the butter in a pan.
  • Meanwhile mash the bananas with a fork in the bowl.
  • Then add the butter and all other ingredients to the bowl and mix together.
  • Pouter into the tin and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool on a rack

Serve with a good coffee or whatever your morning tipple is.
