Cranberry Banana Oat Bread


A hearty banana bread with cranberries, walnuts and oats.


  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two small loaf pans with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine the mashed bananas, melted butter, egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda, salt. Stir in the chopped walnuts.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the chopped cranberries. The batter will be thick.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean (start checking at 30 minutes – mine took about 35 minutes to bake, but your oven may be different). Allow the bread to cool in the pan before removing and slicing.
