When it comes to banana bread, the only downside of making it is having to wait for it to be done — so I’ve decided to solve for that. And guess what? Along the way I’ve also solved for not having enough ingredients to make an entire loaf — so if you only have ONE overripe banana, that’s fine, because you’re about to have some banana bread, baby! Not only is this fast and economical, but it’s also flourless. It’s basically blended oats (oat flour) and banana. Not only do I recommend you make this immediately, especially if you’re over making entire loaves of banana bread, but you’re not over eating them, but I think you should be doing this with your kids. It’s a great way for them to get a treat while secretly learning about measurements and baking! The texture is super soft, it’s perfectly sweet, and it’s full of filling and good ingredients.
