Banana Oat Bread in the Instant Pot

As a mom of three children three and under, I’m always looking for quick, easy, and healthy recipes. This healthy banana oat bread, made in the Instant Pot, couldn’t be easier! One blender, no bowls, no mixing.  Just place the ingredients in a blender, blend, pour, and cook. This guilt-free banana bread can be prepped in five minutes or less!

 

Gluten-Free & Low Sugar

This instant pot banana oat bread is also a healthy alternative to traditional banana bread. Choose gluten-free oats and it’s gluten-free. This bread also has a fraction of the sugar of traditional banana bread, with just 1/4 a cup of molasses, or maple syrup, in the entire recipe. And perhaps most impressive of all – this bread is approved by both of our toddlers!

Molasses, Honey, or Maple Syrup

This recipe can be made with the liquid sweetener of your choice: molasses, honey, maple syrup or agave nectar will work. I often choose to use molasses in this recipe as a way to introduce more iron into our youngest toddler’s diet. (She’s been going through a self-proclaimed vegetarian phase.) I’ve also grown to love the full-bodied flavor of molasses. If you choose to use molasses, the finished bread will be much darker in color than bread baked with syrup or honey. The texture of the bread will be nearly identical regardless of the sweetener you choose.

 

Can I make this without an Instant Pot?

Absolutely! You can follow the recipe as written, then simply pour into a greased standard muffin tin, or a mini muffin tin. This recipe will yield 12 muffins, or 24 mini muffins. Bake mini muffins for 9 minutes at 400 degrees F. If making standard muffins, bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Pour batter into greased 7 inch pan and spread until smoothly distributed. Add a 3-inch trivet to pot, along with 1 1/2 cups of water. Place pan on top of trivet, lock lid, and cook for 60 minutes at high pressure. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure and remove pan from pot. Remove tin foil and allow bread to cool before removing from pan.

 

And this is the AMAZING Result…

    I would love to make banana oat muffins in the instant pot. How long would I cook them for?

      I’ve never tried them as muffins in the Instant Pot. I’d try 20 minutes with a quick release, then check with a toothpick to see if done in the middle. If they’re not done, you could put them back in for an additional 5 minutes. If you try it we’d love to hear how it went!

    could you just bake it in the 8 or 9 inch square pan? And if so, how long would you bake it?

      It should work! I’d bake it at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes.
