Cranberry Banana Oat Bread

Cranberry Banana Oat Bread

Moist and dense in texture, the bread includes wholesome ingredients, such as oats and fresh banana, and is easy to prepare and very adaptable, accommodating your choice of chopped nuts or dried fruit in place of the cranberries.

Method: 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 9x5-inch loaf pan with a small amount of margarine.

Whisk together flour, oats, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Whisk bananas, eggs and margarine together in a separate bowl. Add sugar, cranberries, and lemon juice; mix until blended. Gently stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture until just combined. Do not over mix the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake until lightly browned, 45 to 50 minutes. Allow the bread to cool completely in the pan, about 1 hour. Turn the bread out onto a cutting board and, using a serrated bread knife, slice the bread into 3/4-inch thick pieces. Arrange on a platter and serve.
