Bananas and oats blend with a box of cranberry quick-bread mix for this recipe. Serve this moist bread warm or cold at breakfast.


  • 1 15.6 - ounce package cranberry quick-bread mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup regular rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 -2 tablespoons orange juice


  1. Lightly grease a 9x5x3-inch or an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan. Set the pan aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together cranberry bread mix, water, egg, rolled oats, and bananas until combined. (Don't add oil, as stated on bread-mix package.) Pour the batter for the bread into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 50 to 55 minutes for the 9x5-inch loaf or 60 to 65 minutes for the 8x4-inch loaf or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
