Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  3. Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl and stir until uniform. Add eggs one at a time, and stir to incorporate. Add oats, banana, buttermilk and vanilla; stir until uniform.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl; stir with a fork to blend. Add flour mixture to banana mixture one third at a time; stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until loaf is dark brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
  6. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes, and then run a knife along edges to loosen, turn out of baking pan and cool on a rack. Makes one loaf.
  7. Tip: You can also make this into muffins-bake muffins for 20 minutes. You’ll get about 12 muffins or 20 mini muffins.
  8. Tip: If you’re only going to purchase one kind of oatmeal, you should buy the old-fashioned or large-flake oatmeal. To turn them into the “quick-cooking” oatmeal called for in this recipe, pulse them in a food processor, or place in a resealable plastic bag and rub them between your hands until they’re broken into small bits.

I made this yesterday with left over banana's and it was great. I used splenda instead of the white sugar and added 1/4 c splenda brown sugar. I also didn't have buttermilk, so I used fat free half and half and it turned out great!!!!! Excellent warm.

Pretty dry surprisingly. I've had better and I will be usinga different recipe next time.
