Butterscotch Oatmeal Banana Bread
Butterscotch Oatmeal Banana Bread

Butterscotch oatmeal banana bread. Sounds like something you should make today, yes?If you are like me, you have about 189 frozen bananas in your freezer, just waiting to be made into banana bread. If you are like me, a recipe that makes one loaf is just not going to cut it for making a dent in said frozen bananas. If you are like my family, on the other hand, you are tired of banana bread.

Butterscotch Oatmeal Banana Bread. A new delicious twist on banana bread from @kitchenmagpie


This banana bread recipe was born out of the desire to use up those bananas in my freezer and give banana bread a fresh taste. The butterscotch and coconut did the trick while the oatmeal lends a nice density to the loaf which is unusual for banana bread. All in all, this was a big winner, but let’s remember that my kids like anything with chocolate or other chips in it.

Sadly, I still have about 180 frozen bananas left in my freezer but at least this double recipe does put a dent in them!

This snowy Sunday found us up early tackling the yard and by yard I mean Christmas decorations. In typical Magpie family fashion, we waited until it got cold and snowy to get out outside Christmas decor up, which meant that I was shoveling snow to get at the ground to secure the decorations in properly. The wonderful lights that Mike spent hours putting up last year now do not work – I am irritated beyond words- so out I went to buy those pretty icicle ones. The ones that are extremely expensive and better look like flashing, gorgeous icicles on the front of my garage or they are going back, says I.

So after hours of physical labor outside I am off this evening to watch an intellectual documentary about a new tribe of vampires that sparkle in the sun and magically have half human babies. I hear there is also an active werewolf population in the area that these vampires inhabit as well, making the probability of an intense cultural clash between the two imminent.

I am looking forward to expanding my mind and watching something intelligently created tonight.

Or just the movie theater popcorn with loads of butter.


That’s My Documentary Story & I’m Sticking to It Magpie.

  1. Would be nice if you put oven temp after I made whole thing! It didn’t get fluffy after eggs either it was runny

  2. This banana bread is awesome. A good change from the banana bread I have been making for years.
    My grand children loved it. Will be adding it to my favourite recipes. I also made your scone recipe and
    It was also amazing. I shall be making a lot more of your recipes. I will be buying your cook book.
