Blueberry Banana Oat Bread

So I received my first Texas Toll Bill today.


What’s interesting to note is that the only charges I’ve incurred so far are for the car that has Texas license plates. My other car still has Nevada plates, therefore, no bill.

Or so I thought.

My reliable source, who shall remain nameless, (J), just informed me that I will, in fact, be receiving a bill for the other car. They oh-so-conveniently send it to the address where the car is registered.

Which is………wait for it…..wait for it……… in Nevada.



Blueberry Banana Oat Bread – adapted from Driscolls

This bread was wonderful, easy to make, and my only lament about it is that it’s gone. Time to buy more bananas…..

  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana, about 2 medium
  • 2/3 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cups canola oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups blueberries

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and dust lightly with flour.

Whisk buttermilk, eggs, banana, sugar and oil in a large bowl until well blended. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture, mixing just until combined.Gently fold in blueberries. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake about 1 hour, or until browned and a pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing
