This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


1/3 c. canola oil

2 eggs, beaten

2/3 c. white sugar

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. quick-cooking oats

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 c. mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium bananas)

1/4 c. chopped raisins or nuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease or spray a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan. Beat the oil and eggs with a mixer (or by hand). Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Mix flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add flour mixture and mashed bananas to oil and egg mixture. Add raisins or nuts if you want. Stir until blended. Pour mixture into loaf pan. Tent a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the pan (to prevent overbrowning). Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Bread is done when toothpick inserted in the center of bread comes out clean. Remove bread from oven and let it cool for five to 10 minutes. Run a knife between the bread and the sides of the pan. Turn the pan upside down on a baking rack. Cool bread before you cut it
