Ingredients for the Healthy Oat Bran Banana BreadTo make this healthy banana bread, we are going to need:
- 1 cup oat bran
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup corn oil
- 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 egg whites
- 3 bananas, ripe, mashed and ready to be stirred into our mix
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup chopped dates
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Prepare the Healthy Oat Bran Banana BreadTo prepare for our recipe, we are going to first need to grease a 9x5x2-inch loaf pan with oil; make sure to dust generously with flour. After we dust and grease our loaf pan, we will set it aside.
In a bowl, combine oat bran, flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. This too we will set aside for future use. We will now preheat our oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl with electric hand-held mixer on low speed, beat corn oil with the brown sugar until well blended. Make sire you mix it through until you you get a nice, consistent and viscous texture.
Beat in vanilla, egg whites, mashed bananas -- this is my favorite part -- and milk; beat consistently for about 1 minute, until well blended. Stir in dry ingredients. Mix in the dates and chopped pecans. Spoon into prepared pan.
Bake on center shelf. Bake on center shelf at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Our oat bran banana bread is ready. Remove from oven and invert cake onto a wire rack. Turn loaf upright and cool thoroughly before serving.
