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.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
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.
Bake in the preheated oven until partially cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool completely.
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.
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.
