Twist on two classics, banana bread and peanut butter and jelly. This one bowl PB&J banana bread is made with oat flour and no refined sugar!
When thinking up this recipe, I had no idea if it would work out or not. It came out much better than I imagined. It tastes like banana bread with a hint of peanut butter and the berries add the perfect amount of extra sweetness.
I used gluten-free oat flour in this recipe because I want it to be something everyone can enjoy, I don’t have any gluten intolerances myself. I haven’t tried any alternatives for this recipe yet, if you do let me know!
For this recipe, I made my own flour by blending quick cook oats in a blender for 30 seconds. You could also use rolled or sprouted oats, just make sure they are gluten-free if that is needed. Or you can buy pre-made oat flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill). You can get this at Whole Foods and most other grocery stores or on Amazon.
What you need for this oat flour banana bread
- Ripe bananas
- Oat flour
- Peanut butter (I suggest using all-natural, no sugar-added creamy peanut butter)
- Maple syrup (make sure this is real maple syrup, don’t use the fake stuff!)
- Frozen berries (can sub fresh berries or your favorite jam)
