Energy Breakfast Loaf

A great energy boosting loaf to help give you that ‘go’ in the morning. This is a hybrid of banana bread and an oatmeal cookie. It’s extremely filling. Pair this with a smoothie for a delish breakfast or snack.



Step: 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

Step: 2

Combine oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Beat milk, applesauce, honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until smooth; add eggs and mix well. Mix oats mixture into milk mixture until batter is just combined; stir in bananas. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared baking pan.

Step: 3

Bake in the preheated oven until partially cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool completely.

Step: 4

Mix milk chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, and 1 teaspoon flour together in a bowl until chips are coated in flour, adding more flour if needed. Spread coated chips over the cooled loaf and top with remaining batter.

Step: 5

Bake in the oven until loaf is cooked through and lightly browned on top, 35 to 45 minutes.

The quality of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.

To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
