Oatmeal Banana Bread

I don't know about y'all but I love to bake and I love me some banana bread. The recipe that I usually use has like 1 1/2 cups sugar in it and that's just not okay. When I found this recipe on Pinterest I just new I had to give it a try. First of all, it's super easy to make and second, the ingredients aren't bizarre and un heard of like a lot of healthy dessert recipes I have found. I seriously had all the ingredients on the list already at home.

What You’ll Need:
2 whole, ripe bananas
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 ¼ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (I used cinnamon, and I'm kind of obsessed with it so I used a lot lol)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 cup dried cranberries (I chopped up half an apple instead)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For the Topping: In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup oats, 1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon melted butter; set aside.

For the Bread: Mash bananas in a medium bowl, then stir in egg and milk. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, 1 cup oats, ½ cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Stir just to combine (batter should be lumpy). Stir in cranberries.

Pour mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan or muffin tin, and sprinkle with topping mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. Loaf is done when a toothpick inserted in comes out clean or with some dry crumbs from the topping.

It came out super moist and delicious! I asked my Dad if he would eat it if I were to make it again and he said "Yes!" 
So now I know it really is good! :)
