Oatmeal Banana Bread Breakfast Bars

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. nutmeg - freshly grated
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
5 bananas - ripe
1 tbsp. vanilla-bean paste
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (I use Good Sense) 
1 cup walnuts, pecans or both

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In the bowl of an electric mixer combine flour, salt, baking soda, spices and butter. Mix on low until combined.  Add egg, bananas and vanilla bean paste - turn mixer back on low and combine well.   Remove bowl from mixer and add oats and nuts, stirring with a spatula to combine.  Pour batter into a USA Pans 15X6 Hot Dog Bun Pan and bake for 35 minutes, until brown.  Let cool and remove from pan, then cut into bar shapes.  Enjoy!


  1. This recipe looks interesting, but I'm gonna guess not too many people have a USA Pans 15X6 Hot Dog Bun Pan laying around, whatever that might be. What else could it be baked in?

  2. You could try it in a 9X13 Linda and see how that works. The link for the hot dog pan is: http://www.amazon.com/USA-Pans-England-Aluminized-Americoat/dp/B002UNMZQ2 just so you can see what it looks like!
