Everyone needs a foolproof banana bread recipe in their recipe box. And it’s even better if the recipe is a bit healthier than the most regular banana bread recipes out there.

This oat bran banana bread comes out looking gorgeous every time. Once, I even had a 7-minute power outage while baking it, but it still turned out perfect.

This banana bread isn’t very sweet and is quite high in fiber.

I love this recipe, I've tried it with different tweaks extra bananas, or just ground up oat bran, with sweetener or brown sugar, and yesterday I substituted shredded apples for bananas with lots of extra cinnamon, vanilla, and some nutmeg and I love how it always turns out moist and delicious! Thank you for this amazing recipe.

Tried my hand at this recipe this morning, and it is scrumptious! I read somewhere that 1 c. oat bran can be substituted with 3/4-1 c. regular oats, so I went with that option and had great results. I love how little sugar this recipe uses, too! Thanks!
