I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and as a kid, my Mom would sometimes add banana to her cookies which was delicious. This recipe is a combination of a lot of my favorite banana bread recipes and the oats add some additional heartiness and health benefits. I also learned a great trick from a friend and always caramelize my bananas in the oven for any banana bread recipe which adds some additional deep banana flavor and sweetness. You could easily make this without the chocolate chips and add nuts, blueberries, or cranberries.One thing to note about this bread is that it is much denser than you average banana bread.

- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 U egg
- 2 U egg whites
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 U bananas (the riper the better)
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Place the bananas, with the peels on, in the oven for about 10 minutes until the skins become completely black. This will caramelize the banana and add more intense flavor to the bread, and also is a great trick if your bananas aren’t completely ripe. Let them cool.
Combine all of the dry ingredients flour, splenda sugar blend, cinnamon, nutmeg, cinnamon,salt, and oats in a large mixing bowl.
Mash the bananas using a fork and then whisk together with the egg and egg whites.
Pour the banana and egg mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour everything into a bread pan, sprayed with non fat cooking spray, and cook for around 35 minutes or until bread has risen and a toothpick comes out clean.
