  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup blueberries (or raisins)
  • 3/4 cup walnuts, broken into pieces (optional) I used pecans

  2. Combine oil, honey and eggs in a food processor. Beat in bananas; set aside
  3. In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add oats. Carefully stir in blueberries (or raisins) and walnuts. Add to banana mixture, stirring just until moistened.

If you're looking for some healthy recipes, then Eat Well, Live Well by Pamela Smith is the cookbook for you. This is one of her many recipes. It called for whole wheat pastry flour, which I didn't have so I used regular whole wheat flour had it turned out just fine.
