Slow Cooker Oatmeal Banana Bread

  • Cooking Time:

    2–3 hours on High
  • Servings:



1/2 c. but­ter fla­vored short­en­ing
1 c. sug­ar
2 eggs, beat­en
1/2 tsp. vanil­la extract
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. quick cook­ing oats
1 tsp. bak­ing soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cin­na­mon
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 c. milk
option­al: 3/4 c. semi-sweet choco­late chips or dark choco­late
option­al: 3/4 c. coconut
option­al: 1/2 c. nuts

Nev­er throw out a brown, mushy banana again!  I love recipes that use up things that might go to waste oth­er­wise — like this Slow Cook­er Oat­meal Banana Bread!

  1. In the bot­tom of your oval 6 quart slow cook­er, place a rack or crum­ble tin foil to make a rack, to place your bread/loaf pan on the top. This helps the steam from the slow cook­er cir­cu­late under the bread/loaf pan for even cook­ing.
  2. Slow cook­er needs to be turned onto High.
  3. Cream the short­en­ing and sug­ar togeth­er. Next add eggs and vanil­la, and beat until fluffy.
  4. Grad­u­al­ly add in the flour, oat­meal, bak­ing soda, salt and cin­na­mon.
  5. Last­ly mix in the bananas and milk until blend­ed well.
  6. Option­al: Add in Choco­late Chips or coconut! Also very tasty!
  7. Greased your bread/loaf pan, make sure it fits inside your slow cook­er.
  8. Place on top of rack or foil rack.
  9. Place 2–4 thick­ness­es of paper tow­el or dish clothe over the top of the slow cook­er. This will absorb the mois­ture so it will not drip onto your bread.
  10. Plac­ing lid snug­ly on top of tow­el.
  11. Cov­er. Cook for 2–3 hours on HIGH.
  12. Do a tooth­pick test to make sure the bread is done and remove loaf pan. (Tooth­pick test is to stick tooth­pick in the mid­dle of the bread and if it comes out clean, the bread is done. Also the bread will break away from the edge of the pan.)
  13. Let cool and then serve.

won­der­ing if you can sub­sti­tute but­ter etc. for the short­en­ing? Thank you. Sounds won­der­ful.


I have nev­er made bread and I am no bak­er — I am just learn­ing Can I use light brown sug­ar?


Do you put any water in the bot­tom of the crock­pot to cre­ate mois­ture?
