I may or may not have brought some of this with me to Montauk this past weekend.

I seriously cannot get enough and neither can Jord. I also was brainstorming like 100 more banana bread recipes on the 3 hour train there and back too. Yes, over 6 hours total it takes us to get to and from Montauk each weekend.

We have a house out there with 7 guys and myself (yes, you read that right). Jord’s cousin rents a house out there in June and this is the second time we are joining in. I seriously love Montauk so much despite the trek out there. It is such a perfect beach town. It is super low key compared to most areas of the Hamptons with some of my favorite restaurants.

We will be out there every weekend in June so obviously I am having a panic attack about the amount of money we are spending on the trains, house, food, cabs, etc. I have been bringing a bunch of snacks and treats out with me to help minimize some snacking costs since my snack in take would probably cost more than a meal (just kidding…but really).

I am happy to share that this Flourless Oatmeal Raisin Banana Bread travels well and it won’t have you feeling all heavy on the beach in the bathing suit. Pretty much all of my recipes have that intention on the blog. I am not one who wants to be in a bathing suit feeling large but I also don’t want to be sipping a kale juice (gross) at the same time.

I adapted this recipe from my Strawberry Oatmeal Banana Bread. I was going for a cinnamon bun vibe but one thing let to another and it more reminds me of an oatmeal raisin cookie.

It is SO easy to make like all my other banana breads and you can freeze half too.. if you don’t eat it all first 😉

  1. Hi Rachel,
    Do you have the nutritional info on this flourless oatmeal raisin banana bread? I’m ready to make it and do my portion control packaging… I could just smell it already….Thanks, love all your blogs!!!

    1. Hi Loly, no I do not have the nutritional info. You can definitely plug it into one of the online calculators if you need the breakdown! Hope you love it! xx

  2. Oh my gosh, yes!!! Cinnamon raisin toast topped with peanut butter and banana is my favorite breakfast and this recipe is like all that wrapped into one.

    P.S. Is it just me, or does this bread just beg to be “french toasted”?


  3. This looks amazing! Can I make it as muffins in a standard muffin tin? Or should I change the ratios a bit?

  4. Hi Rachel
    Anything made with oats is healthy and nutritious and am definitely gonna try this one which looks very simple. Hope it will not be dense and will throw in some flax meal and chia seeds for added crunch.

  5. Hi Rachel! I have been itching to try one of your banana bread recipes and I like these flavors so I gave it a whirl. I opted to turn the batter into muffins because somehow muffins are just more appealing to me than a loaf (maybe it’s those crusty edges…). I also used flax eggs and it worked out perfectly.
    I do feel there is a strong peanut butter taste so that is slightly misleading since the bread is simply titled Flourless Oatmeal Raisin Banana Bread. For the so-so peanut butter fans, make sure you use a nut butter you like. Thankfully, I like peanut butter so this was just great. It makes a lovely, filling snack. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes.

    1. hi melanie – thanks for your note. it does depend on the brand PB you use for how flavorful it is. sorry you felt my title is misleading, but i personally think it fits great 🙂 thanks!

  6. I am usually not the type to write a comment, but these… OH MY!!!
    I made them and they are soooo good. I substituted 10 Gr. of the flour for protein Powder, but I don’t think it changed the texture or taste much.
    I never bake banana bread beacause until now they were always a dissapointment, but these are like christmas in the form of a bread and surprise surprise, they are healthy too 😀 (only ca 150 kcal per slice -10 slices- and some good healthy fats). Happy that I came across your page, thank you for sharing those amazing recipes!!

  7. Does anyone have the nutritional info for this recipe? There’s so many I want to try but it’ll take forever to enter it into some app!
