Banana or Pumpkin Tommy Bread

This recipe was gifted to me by one of my lovely former students Jen Thomas. I dubbed it "Tommy bread" because she was so generous to bring enough to share thereby ensuring her name would always be attached to this delicious and sooo simple recipe. It's made with oats and no flour so, it's gluten free and can be toasted and jazzed up with a smear of almond butter and Tommy's chia seed fruit jam

Easy Oatmeal "Tommy" Banana Bread: This recipe is the BOMB!!!! it is completely gluten free! It is SOOoooooo easy to make and fast! Prep time is literally under 10 minutes and bake time @30minutes. Add extra nutrition and flavor by adding a spoonful of Fruity Chia Jam (recipe included). Always best to use top quality ingredients and organic when possible

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Bananas: 3 small-medium or 2 large-extra large bananas

Eggs: 2

Maple Syrup: 1/4 cup

Baking soda 1 teaspoon

Spice: 1/4 teaspoon I like pumpkin pie spice but straight cinnamon is delicious too

Lightly oiled loaf pan: parchment paper may be used for easy removal.

Preparation: Place all ingredients into a food processor or large blender. Blend until mostly smooth. Pour batter into oiled pan and place in pre-heated oven. Check bread in 30 minutes by inserting a toothpick till clean. Allow additional 5 minutes if needed. Allow to cool and remove from pan. Slice and enjoy with Fruity Chia Jam
