Banana Oatmeal Bread

I made some very good banana bread tonight:

  1. Cream 1 cup of sugar and a half cup of butter and a healthy tablespoon of honey.
  2. To that, add two eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 3 ripe bananas, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Drop in 4 tablespoons of sour cream. Beat it silly.
  3. While that is mixing, in another bowl mix 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 2/3 a cup of AP flour and a cup of quick cooking oats. Mix in a teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt.
  4. Slowly add that to the mixing wet ingredients.
  5. Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  6. Chop together about a cup of oats, about a cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of butter. I added about a tablespoon of flax seed to this.
  7. Sprinkle that mixture over the top and bake at 350f for 40 minutes or until the center sets.

It’s good alone and great with a scoop of ice cream or some peach slices. I think it could also be nice with a few nuts or raisins thrown in the batter.
