Fish-Shape Banana Bread

Recipe adapted from JS

1. 5 large bananas mashed
2. 1/2 cup oatmeal
3. 1/2 - 3/4 cup graham flour (more nutritious, if not using plain flour is fine)
4. 1 tsp baking powder
5. 1 tsp wheat germ (optional, added for more nutritious value)
6. 1 tsp brewer's yeast (optional, added for more nutritious value)

1. Pre-heat oven to 200 °C (390°F).
2. Mash the bananas, add all other ingredients and mix well.
3. On a baking tray lay with baking paper, form into desired shapes, e.g. fish with a spoon.
4. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

1. You can add any toppings such as nuts mixed in as desired.

2. This is very suitable for telling Bible stories. As you eat them, you can tell the story of Jesus feeding five thousands with five loaves and two fish (from John 6:1-14 and Matthew 14:13-21) or Noah's Ark, depending on what animals you shaped.

Additional Information:
J requested for this when we came home after piano class today. I made this today, after being inspired by my friend, JS, at the preschool at FIBC. I made a teddybear shape at the request of J. It tasted wonderfully sweet. Both J and Daddy like it.

This is a very healthy and tasty snack. There is no added sugar and no added butter/margarine, just purely natural goodness and sweetness from the oatmeal and bananas. I hope you will try it and like it too. I will be making it for our weekly family meeting.
