I saw this recipe by Julie from The Roasted Root on Pinterest and new I’d have to try it. I love banana bread, and I love oatmeal, and I loved the sound of this recipe! I made the recipe this morning, adding in a half of a chopped pink lady apple, as I usually add apple chunks to my banana bread. I also substituted Lactofree milk for the Almond milk because someone in my family is lactose intolerant. 

Verdict: I love the consistency of this once it’s cooled and refrigerated. When I first removed it from the oven and cooled and sliced it, the bottom was a little ‘wet’. That could be because I lined my tin with parchment paper. It is also not sweet enough for my liking. That could be because I didn’t use almond milk. I slathered a bit of strawberry jam on the top and that made it tastier. Otherwise, it’s a bit bland as is. I would add a little more maple syrup or even some splenda to the recipe next time. But I’ll definitely make this again. This is a great snack for afternoon tea, or to have as breakfast on the go.
