Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Banana Bread

Phew. Try saying that 5 times fast. Before I start, let it be known that this recipe is both vegan and gluten free but that does not make it any less delicious. And to be fair, I cheat and top my slice with a thick spread of butter thus negating the vegan aspect of whichever piece I am eating! And just so you know, it sounds like a load of flavours mixed together, but you can’t really taste the peanut butter. It’s mostly acting like a sticking agent not a flavour.

(Recipe adapted from Baker Bettie)

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups of Oatmeal (you can check to see if it’s certified gluten free)
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
banana slices to garnish (if desired)

baking recipes
All ze ingredients.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly oil your loaf tin and set it aside.

Put the oatmeal in a blender or food processor and crush it into fine crumbs. (Or a coffee bean grinder in my case).

Add all of your ingredients except the chocolate chips into a bowl and thoroughly mix together. It will not be very smooth because of the oatmeal and it will be very thick! Much thicker than a traditional banana bread batter. If the batter is crumbly, add a few tablespoons of water to it. Even though it’s thick it should still hold together.  Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.

I enjoy my pieces with a thick slathering of butter which completely negates the vegan aspect of the bread.Sam liked his with a cup of coffee.
