Oatmeal Banana Bread

I’ve recently started a little journey to get a bit healthier, move more, and drop some extra pounds.  But for someone who just loves to bake (fo myself and others), I wanted to be creative about finding ways to still get to enjoy that part of my life,while at the same time making wise eating choices.  I recently made this Oatmeal Banana Bread from the Weight Watchers website.  I just loved it.  So yummy and wholesome and good!  Now, I wouldn’t exactly call it celery, but a  slice a day paired with a banana was a pretty healthy breakfast for me. 🙂
