Banana Oat Bread

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Kree6528

The oats and nuts in this banana bread make it different and give it a great flavor and texture. It's one of my favorite quick breads, and I probably make it more frequently than any other! Don't forget to sprinkle the oats on top for a great crunch! This recipe came from Shanna at the IBS message boards at, although I modified it slightly.

This is very good and a great way to get heart healthy oats into your diet!!! I baked mine in a heart shaped cake pan and cut the time to about 40 minutes. Yummie!
