oat banana bread with bloobs + walnuts

food blog culture has gotten annoying right? i'm ready for the rebellion.
way over the uber styled stuff
not every dish that comes out of your kitchen requires a whole photoshoot with fancy spoons and items stored in prop closets.
that's not real life. real kitchens have shit all over the place.

i'm trying to embrace the messy chaos. as long as the light's good and there aren't bugs crawling in the background, then how bad could the picture be?

i make banana bread over and over again because i always want to eat more.
i know that internet has 2 billion recipes for banana bread, but i don't care. this one is mine and it was goooooood.
a simple banana bread made with buttermilk, some oats, blueberries and walnuts folded in. i topped it with a line of raw sugar and a line of sesame seeds for absolutely no reason.

this loaf was moist business. like, perfection moist.
finished in 2 days between 2 people, moist.


Oat Blueberry Banana Bread

1 3/4 cups flour (227g)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 eggs
1/3 cup buttermilk (80g)

1 cup mashed bananas
1 1/4 cup sugar (250g)
1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract (opt)
3/4c-1c frozen blueberries
1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted

preheat oven to 325 degreesF. grease a 9x5" loaf pan. mix dry ingredients in bowl and whisk. mix wet ingredients (eggs - vanilla) in another larger bowl. add dry ingredients to wet and use a spatula to stir just til combined. fold in the blueberries and walnuts. scrape into pan and bake for 1 hr and 10-20 minutes - just start checking after an hour. 
let cool a bit before serving. it will get better after a day.
