* Instead of banana, substitute 1 cup of either shredded carrot or zucchini, or ¼ inch sized dice of apple or pear after it is peeled.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a loaf pan.

In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg; add oats and raisins. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, oil, yogurt or sour cream, and vanilla; mix in the banana or other 1 cup substitute ingredient. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined without over beating.

Bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
