1 1/2 cups flour (I use self-rising -- add in the baking soda and salt if you have all-purpose)
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk (I use regular milk)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons butter or stick margarine
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour (and salt and baking soda if necessary) and next 2 ingredients in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture. Combine banana, buttermilk, oil, and egg whites in a bowl; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moist. Spoon batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
Combine 1/4 cup oats, walnuts, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and butter, and sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
This recipe was a hit at work. I cook for seniors at a retirment community. It said 2 egg whites. I just used one whole egg. Instead of the oil. I used soft butter. Instead of nuts in the topping. I put the nuts in the batter for the bread. It came out beautiful. The residents loved it. I made one loaf to test it. Put it out with the regular donuts and stuff we put out for breakfast in the morning. It was sort of a trial to see if anyone likes it. Well they did. Now they all want to order some up to take home for the holidays. I made this recipe twice already. Thanks for the nice recipe.
