Banana Bread~ in A Blender
(1) 2 cups old-fashioned oats
(2) 2-3 bananas ( about 1 cup)
(3) 2 large eggs
(4) 1 teaspoon baking soda
(5) 1/4 cup maple syrup = 4 tbsp. [standard] [some people use 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce]
Note: I added 2 Tbsp of brown monk fruit & One loaf without any added sweetener (optional)
(6) ¼ teaspoon Fine Grain Sea Salt
(7) Add complimentary spices (below)
SPICES1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cinnamon (+ a dash of nutmeg)
2 tablespoons of flax seeds, slightly crushed in a mortar and pestle
2-4 tablespoons peanut butter (optional)
1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 9×5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2 Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and well combined. ( you can have some chunks of banana)
Be sure not to over blend. If the batter is over blended, it will start to warm and cook the oats which prevents the loaf from baking into a bread-like texture. It will have the texture of oatmeal if the oats start cooking before you bake the bread.)
3 Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (If the top of the loaf is browned, but the center is not baked all the way through yet, simply cover the top with foil and let the loaf continue to bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.)TOPPERS: walnuts, banana slices, coconut flakes, cranberry and lemon zest. You can also add these toppers to the batter itself
Let loaf cool completely in loaf pan. Store bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Do Not Over Blend The Batter!
If the batter is over blended, it will start to warm and cook the oats which prevents the loaf from baking into a bread-like texture.
If the oats start cooking before you bake the bread, you will end up with the texture of oatmeal–> gooey gummy bread.
Keep an eye on your baking. Rotate bread halfway through cooking. If it’s too brown, you can still save the day. Covered the top of the bread with tin foil and back in the oven. Check for doneness when inserting a toothpick in the bread and the toothpick comes out clean.
You can even make banana bread muffins!

Cinnamon Swirl Recipe
INGREDIENTS:Add 2-3 tbsp of butter, 3 tbsp. brown monks fruit, 2-3 tbsp. of cinnamon. The proportions is up to you. If you want a heavy swirl or a light swirl.
METHOD: Add 2 inches of batter in your baking container, followed by dollops of cinnamon. Swirl it around with a knife. REPEAT for the next two layers.
VARIATIONS:You can even add cardamom, chopped dates, figs or walnuts in your swirl.
The amount of cinnamon is up to you! But, don’t go overboard. Note: You can swirl with peanut butter (2-4 tablespoons)
For pumpkin blender bread, you only need to exchange the bananas with a 15 oz can pure pumpkin and you standard pumpkin spices. 15oz or about 2 cups of apples is a great substitute for bananas, and goes well with cinnamon.
VARIATION: Cut banana bread slices in half and toast in the oven for delicious biscotti! Dip 1/3 of each piece in dark chocolate and place on a cooling rack.
FREEZER Friendly: Slice frozen banana bread. Pop in the toaster. They taste amazingly fresh
