Tips for making your banana oat bread
A few tips that I found could be helpful when making this recipe are the following:
- It is better to use overripe bananas because they are sweeter. They help us use less added sugar.
- Look for bananas with many brown spots on them, but that are still firm to the touch.
- You can make this recipe gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free rolled oats.
- It is easier to make your oat flour at home. Just add to a blender or food processor your rolled oats and blend away until it has a flour consistency.
- The white chocolate chips create a nice balance and a little extra sweetness.
- You can replace the white chocolate chip with dark or milk chocolate chips if you prefer. You can omit them completely if you don’t like the chocolate chips.
- For a complete vegan banana oat bread, you can replace the eggs with the mixture of 2 flax eggs (Mix 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal with 5 Tbsp water and let it rest on the countertop for 3 minutes..
- Covering the bread when baking it, will prevent it from browning too much.
- Store it in the fridge; it will last for up to 3 days.
- My recommendation would be, warm up a slice and put some butter on it. Alternatively, if you want it sweeter, after warming up the slice, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
