RE: oatmeal-banana bread?

I made this the other day. It doesn't have oatmeal but I'd sub the oatmeal for part of the flour and walnuts in the crumb topping.

Banana Walnut Coffee Cake

Cinnamon-Walnut Crumb Topping

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Blend together until crumbs form. Chill slightly.


1 cup flour
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed banana (about 3 small)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 chopped walnuts


Mix dry ingredients with fork in large bowl.

Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add to dry ingredients, mix just until blended. Stir in walnuts.

Spread batter in an 8x8 greased and floured baking dish. Crumble topping evenly over surface of batter.

Bake 25-30 minutes in 350F oven.

This is my "go to" banana bread and I usually get compliments on it due to the maple flavor-yum!

Banana Oat Bread
9x5 inch loaf pan, greased
350 degrees for 45-50 min. (usually 50)

1 1/4 cups unsifted flour (can use some whole wheat pastry flour if you want)

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar (I use 1/3 cup)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs beaten
1 cup mashed bananas (2 large or 3 small)
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 TBLSP veg. oil (I use canola)

Mash banana and stir together with eggs, oil, sugar and syrup. Mix dry ing. Add to wet ing. Mix well.

Turn into greased loaf pan. Bake until wooden pick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Cool 10 min. before cutting.
