Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Bread

Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Bread

 I whipped up this hearty, nourishing, and best of all delicious bread for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. It was a healthy start to the feasting that would go on later in the day and to balance out the overnight cinnamon rolls that were also baking. You have your common breakfast foods of oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt all rolled into one, making it the perfect model for a breakfast bread. And quite a nutritious one using honey as a sweetener and lots of whole wheat flour. There’s no butter or oil. But honestly, you would never know just how healthy it really was if I put a piece in front of you. The bananas help to naturally sweeten it even further, and its very moist. There’s a heavy dose of vibrant cranberries speckled throughout along with crunchy walnuts. It’s dense and filling, and bursting with banana flavor. The true test was my 14 year old nephew. It passed with flying colors. I even caught him eating it as a bedtime snack.
