  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cups old fashioned oats + 1 tbsp to reserve
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted (or swap for unsalted butter)
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or raisins optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients: wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, oats, and cinnamon.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas well. Whisk in wet ingredients: honey, coconut oil, milk and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs one at a time.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. If using chocolate chips, add at this time. Pour into a well-sprayed or lined loaf pan. Sprinkle any leftover oats on top and cover with foil.
  • Bake covered for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and continue cooking 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before serving.
