Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread

In my quest to cut back on processed foods, I have been making my own snacks to carry with me to work.  I started with these Peanut Butter Granola Bars and then these Granola Truffles.  I am happy to report that I have not purchased store bought granola bars so far this year!

Since I had two very ripe bananas sitting on my counter top, I thought I would try this peanut butter banana bread.  It did not disappoint.  The bread was moist and very flavorful ~ love the peanut butter banana combo.  The addition of the oats sprinkled on top gives it a little extra crunch.  I'll definitely be making this again!

Dry Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I ground Soft White Wheat in my WonderMill)
3/4 cup oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup finely ground flaxseed (I grind this in my Magic Bullet)
1 tsp. cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup skim milk (I used Soy)
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
2 large very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In two separate bowls, mix dry, then wet and the combine, adding wet to dry and stirring gently until the mixture just comes together.  Pour into a sprayed loaf pan and sprinkle oats on top.  Bake 1 hour or until cake tester comes out clean.
