Eggless whole wheat and oats Banana loaf

For the second week of Bake-a-thon, i have taken "Fresh Fruits in Bakes" as my theme. The first post in this genre, is obviously banana bread. Banana bread is something that gets baked almost twice in a month, sometimes i bake it plain, sometimes add chocolate, sometimes oats and i have tried adding spices too. 
This banana loaf is with oats, i have also added some chocolate chips and walnuts too. 
A perfect afterschool snack for your kids, that can also be enjoyed for breakfast with some warm coffee.  I have included 1/4 cup of milk in the ingredients list, but sometimes the banana and oil blended together will be enough liquid to hydrate the flour mix, so if planning to make it vegan, go ahead and omit the milk.  Do try and let me know how you liked it

Ingredients
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
3 nos bananas ( I used the Philippines banana)
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup milk (optional)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 170C, line a loaf tin with parchment. I used a 7 inch loaf tin.
  • In a large bowl take together flour and oats, to this add baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon powder
  • In another bowl, take the bananas,add oil, sugar and milk to it and using a electric blender, blend it smooth. This can be done with a fork too, but i prefer a smooth banana purée, as my kids don’t like even a minute chunk of banana in the bake.

  • Now to this add the dry flour mix in 3 batches and using a spatula mix it to smooth batter. Take care not mix vigorously, and mix in one direction.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared  loaf tin and bake the cake in a preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  • Once done, remove the loaf tin from the oven, let it sit for 5 minutes then loosen the sides of the loaf from the tin, then slowly remove the loaf onto a wire rack and let it cool completely. Serve it warm

  1. This is one of the healthiest banana breads I have read so far. And the nuts and chocochips would add some interesting texture to the soft bread.

  8. I had done a similar combination long back, and it is lying in my drafts craving to be baked again and clicked... hehe... I haven't done banana bread in ages and I am craving to bake them, alas, I am already giving in to too many outside temptations that I don't want a banana bread to be added to it. :( That slice looks so tempting, I wish I could get one bite of it with my cup of coffee...
