Oatmeal Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips Recipe

List of Ingredients:
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 X 5 bread pan with cooking spray. Once the oven is preheated, 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 a more intense flavor to the bread. This is a great trick if your bananas aren’t completely ripe. Let them cool. Remove peels and mash with fork. If you are pressed for time, you can skip this step and just use very ripe mashed bananas.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, Add the yogurt, mashed bananas, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
Add to the wet ingredients, Use a spatula to stir slowly until the flour is fully incorporated into the mixture. Try not to overmix. If using chocolate chips, fold them into the bread.
Pour everything into a bread pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
Bake for 35-45 minutes until the bread is cooked through and a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Let cool at least 15 minutes and then remove from pan to cool on a wire rack.
