I didn’t know January was National Oatmeal Month. It makes sense though because everybody’s New Year’s resolutions include sensible eating habits. Well, it’s already mid-February and I’m committed to eating more oatmeal.

Better than a Banana Bread

Precisely with that in mind, I created this super moist, not so sweet, and hearty oatmeal cranberry-banana bread. It’s delicious as a breakfast option and also as a snack.

When you taste it you won’t believe what I’m going to tell you. A loaf that serves 15 portions only has ¼ cup of melted butter. It only has ¼ cup of lightly packed brown sugar. Even better, it comes with 1 cup of Old Fashioned Quaker Oats. Bingo!

How to make Oatmeal Cranberry-Banana Bread

The trick to make this so moist bread is to hydrate the oats with fat-free milk. Once hydrated, the oats are combined with mashed bananas.

To add some texture, it comes with crunchy pecans and sweet and sour dry cranberries. For the pecans and cranberry to be evenly distributed on the bread, I cover them with flour before adding them to the batter.

This bread is really good a few days later when you slice it and toast it.
