Print Recipe


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 brown bananas about 2 cups
  • 2 packets Maple Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal 1.41 oz or so each, I use O'Organics Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal from ACME Markets
  • 1 TBS butter
  • ¾ to a cup of chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl or mug, combine the milk and the lemon juice, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugar, add in the eggs and whisk until combined. Add in the bananas and using a potato masher, mash them until incorporated into the batter. (If you don’t have a potato masher you can use a big fork or spatula) Add the milk mixture, stir well.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and chocolate chips. Mix until fully blended.
  • Spray or butter a loaf pan, then pour your batter in.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 packets of instant oatmeal mix and 1 TBS butter with your fingertips until crumbly. If you don't have instant oatmeal, you can use ½ cup instant oats & 2 TBS brown sugar in its place.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 50 minutes to an hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly dry (banana often will leave residue).
