Millet & Oat Banana Bread

While part of me mourns the end of summer and cooler (soon to be cold) weather, I also love the fact that I can now comfortably turn on the oven and return to one of my favorite pastimes: baking. As is often the case, some very ripe bananas staring at me from the counter inspired me to make banana bread this morning. I’m a big fan of using whatever I have on hand rather than buying ingredients so that led me to look for a recipe using millet flour and oats. I found one, made some revisions and was very pleased with the result. Enjoy!



  • 1 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ vanilla powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup water (you also also use almond or rice milk)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut oil

I added a mix of dried fruit and nuts to mine and was very pleased with the result.


  1. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together.
  2. In a blender blend the sugar, bananas, oil, water and egg.
  3. Slowly mix the wet mixture into the dry.
  4. Add nuts or anything else you desire.
  5. Pour the mixture into a lined or greased pan.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes (until a toothpick or knife slides out clean)FullSizeRender-1
