How to Make Oatmeal Banana Pecan Bread (or Muffins)
These oatmeal banana pecan muffins are my go-to recipe any time I find ripe bananas in my fruit bowl.
This is a decades-old family recipe.
My sister-in-law gave me this oatmeal banana pecan muffin recipe decades ago. She brought them to the lake one weekend, and everyone loved them. I got the recipe from her and have made these myriad times since then.
This recipe makes muffins or bread; you pick!
This recipe makes one dozen muffins. If you choose to make bread, simply pour the batter into one loaf pan. Both methods yield equally delicious flavors.
Double the recipe and freeze for later!
I often double this recipe and freeze half of the muffins (or one loaf) to enjoy later. To reheat, allow the frozen bread to thaw at room temperature. Heat in the microwave or toaster oven to enjoy the bread warm.

HOW TO MAKE SENSATIONAL STRAWBERRY BUNDT CAKE WITH LEMON GLAZE
Oatmeal Banana Pecan Muffins
- 4 very ripe bananas (this is important; very ripe = sweet & moist)
- 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure out all ingredients (this is just how I do it, you can also measure as you go).
- In a medium bowl, put wet ingredients (bananas, oil, eggs, vanilla) and mix well.
- In another bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, soda, salt, oatmeal & pecans).
- Add dry ingredients to wet, stirring just until blended (over stirring will make muffins tough).
- Line muffin pan with papers; fill almost to the top (these don't rise too much).
- Bake until golden brown, approximately 25-30 minutes.
