Lately, I have been testing out recipes with oat flour. Blend up some old fashioned oats into a dust/flour like texture and substitute in the recipe. I was skeptical as to how the banana bread would turn out. But this oat flour banana bread was a lovely treat.
The Oat Flour Banana Bread was spectacular. More than I dreamed it could be. Moist, dense but not super dense. There were oat flavors in the background but it didn’t take over the banana bread flavor. I will definitely make this again.
Great for people who are Gluten Free or if you want to make a healthy version of banana bread.
If you are in the mood for a skinnier version check out my Oat Flour Skinny Banana Bread it was delicious and a new family favorite!
