This bread is sweet, but not too sweet, and delicious! If your bananas are turning brown, you’ve gotta make this bread. It’s really easy to make, and your house will smell heavenly. I eat this for breakfast, as a snack and for something sweet after dinner. So good!


1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups 100% white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup soy milk, unsweetened
1 1/2 cups bananas, mashed
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract


  1. First, preheat your oven to 350° F and line a 5x9 inch oven safe pan with parchment paper.

  2. Place the oats, white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor and blend into a powder. Transfer the powder to a large mixing bowl.

  3. To the food processor, add the soy milk, bananas, lemon juice, maple syrup, and vanilla and blend until smooth. Add the liquid mixture to the large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients, and gently mix until combined.

  4. Fill the prepared loaf pan with the batter, and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Check it at 50 minutes.

  5. Remove your Banana Bread, along with the parchment paper, from the pan and let it cool on a cutting board or wire rack. Once it’s cooled, you can easily peel the parchment paper from the Banana Bread.

  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you want to go absolutely nutty, add some chopped walnuts to your mix! Make sure your bananas are slightly brown and over-ripe. They are even sweeter this way!
