Hi, and welcome!
I’ve got another healthy treat to share with you today.
As you know, I’m a sucker for banana bread. It’s my treat to myself after a long and busy day. But after using the exact same recipe for months, I wanted to shake it up a little. Add a little somethin’, somethin’ to it.
As you know, I’m also a sucker for oatmeal. So when I found a recipe that combined banana bread with oatmeal, I knew I would fall in love.
This banana bread also has an oatmeal streusel topping, and one of my all-time favorite desserts is any cake with a streusel topping. I could literally just eat the streusel. Typically streusel isn’t that healthy as it usually contains loads of butter and sugar. However, this oatmeal streusel is much healthier. I’ve substituted coconut oil for the butter since coconut oil is a much healthier fat and I’ve reduced the sugar significantly.
This bread is so moist and delicious. I love the addition of pumpkin pie spice, it adds a nice touch of flavour to the bread. And of course, it’s great smeared with some peanut butter or in my case, almond butter! I bet it would also taste good warmed up and then topped with some no-sugar-added jam.
So the next time you’re in the mood for some banana bread, but want something a little different, make this Banana Oatmeal Streusel Bread.
