Amy's Comments: I decided to do a double batch of this and it makes an INSANE amount of batter! So be forewarned if you decide to make 2 loaves at once! Delicious and filling bread, though!!


1 cup flour, all-purpose
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup Quaker Oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup molasses
2 whole eggs
1 cup banana, mashed
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats baking soda, cinnamon and salt, stirring with a whisk.
  3. Place sugar, butter and molasses in a large bowl, beat with a mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add banana, yogurt and vanilla. Beat until blended. Add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until moist. Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 350 for one hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
