Amazing Amy’s Banana Bread

While not dairy free, this bread is worth making an exception for. Thank you for sharing, Amy!


1 C packed brown sugar

1/2 C Coconut Oil

2 large egg whites

1 large egg

1 1/3 C mashed ripe banana (about 2 large)

1 C regular oats

1/2 C Milk

1 C gluten-free flour (I found a great one at Trader Joes)

1 T baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 C corn flakes

1 C dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine brown sugar, coconut oil, egg whites and egg in a large bowl; beat well at medium speed of a mixer. Combine banana, oats and milk; add to sugar mixture, beating well. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir with a whisk. Add to sugar mixture; beat until just moist. Add corn flakes and chocolate, stir with a spoon until just blended. Spoon batter into a 9×5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
