There is a certain ring to the words Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread.

Perhaps it’s because it sounds delicious.

Or Perhaps it sounds like a good, stick to your ribs breakfast.

Or perhaps it sounds healthy.

No matter what it sounds like to you, it sounds amazing to me.  

I assure you, it is.

This Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread is simple, hearty and delicious.  

It’s more nutritious for you than your daily pop tart or sugar cereal and will hold you over longer than either of those too.

Not only does it make a great breakfast, but also a great snack or dessert.

This Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread is not overly sweet, has great texture from the pecans and doesn’t make you feel blah when you are done eating it.

Now I will warn you, it has Pecans in it.  I know that may sound like an obvious statement, but my husband totally glazed over the addition of pecans.

Let me explain.

When I was making the bread, my husband asked what kind.  I said, Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread.  

Then when it was done baking, he asked if I was taking photos of this or if it was up for grabs. He knows quite well that he can’t touch anything until photos have been taken, and always asks.

So I tell him, yes I need to photograph the bread, and again remind him it’s Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread.  I then photograph it right away as he’s very interested in eating a slice.

As I slice into the bread, he says…wait, there are NUTS in the bread?

I say to him, Uh yea. It’s called Oatmeal PECAN Banana Bread.  To which he responds he never heard me say the word Pecan.  

Now in his defense, I have quite a few different banana breads on this website.  NONE of which include nuts.


Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread


I grew up with NEVER putting nuts in my banana bread as my mom breaks out in canker sores from nuts, so we avoided them.  

And that habit stuck.  I never put nuts in my breads. 

However, as I said in the beginning, there is a certain ring to the term Oatmeal Pecan Banana Bread.

Not only does this bread have nuts, is easy to make, and tastes delicious, it’s considered “healthy” in my house and an acceptable breakfast, snack or dessert!

If you like Oatmeal, Pecans and Bananas, then you’ll love this bread!
