Recipe Time: Multi Grain Blueberry Banana Bread
1 1/2 cups all purpose whole wheat flour
1 cup quick rolled oats
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup wild blueberries, thawed for more flavour
1 cup mashed riped banana, about two
1/4 cup grapeseed oil (I always say I am going to try apple sauce as a substitute but forget to buy it as Belle doesn't eat it)
1/4 cup milk or water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray (I use a little oil poured onto a tissue and swiped around a non-stick pan personally).
In a large bowl sift together, flour sugar, baking soda. Stir in oats and blueberries.
In another bowl whisk banana, eggs, and oil. Using wooden spoon stir banana mixture into flour mixture until just combined. At this point because the oats absorb all the liquid I add milk or water until I get the desired consistency. I describe it as a soupy oatmeal. Try not to overmix. Spoon into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in the centre rack of the over for 50-55 minutes or until tester comes out clean (toothpick). Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
