Cinnamon Oatmeal Banana Bread Skillet

In partnership with Quaker.

This is really important: We created a delicious banana bread with fiber to help support your digestive health. (You’re welcome!)

This banana bread skillet is made with a secret, nutrient-dense ingredient: oats.

Oats contain fiber, both soluble and insoluble, which can (ahem) keep things moving. Regularity is a good marker for our health – and shouldn’t be ignored or taken for granted.

In other words, this riff on banana bread is an option that tastes good and can help support digestive health!


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 2 large, overripe bananas
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: honey or maple syrup for drizzling


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Coat your skillet with coconut oil and place into oven to preheat.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Quaker oats, flax seed, baking powder, chia, cinnamon, and optional nuts.
  • In a separate bowl, use a fork to mash the bananas. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the wet mixture into the dry, and mix until well combined.
  • Remove preheated skillet from the oven and pour in banana oatmeal, smoothing until even.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes. Cut into 4 slices to serve.
  • Excess can be stored in the fridge or freezer, and reheated to enjoy!


This riff on banana bread is made with nutritious foods like whole grain oats, flax and chia seeds, and cinnamon. Sources of complex carbs, like oats, have fiber and fiber is good for digestion to help support your regularity.
