I used 4 bananas in this. I made it for my family and they all loved it. Just the right amount of sweetness.

Very good basic recipe. Would definitely make it again and do a little tweaking using some of the suggestions given. I did use a little less sugar and added some walnuts. Yummy

I followed this recipe almost to the letter, but I added some cinnamon and I'm pretty sure I had more than one cup of bananas (I just mashed three whole bananas. Can't go wrong with more banana when making banana bread, right?). It baked up beautifully, smells heavenly, and tastes as good as it smells. I did have to let it go an extra five minutes because it wasn't quite done in the center, and that extra five minutes got the bottoms and sides a little more brown than I wanted, but it's still a great loaf of bread. I will absolutely be making this again! :)

Sorry, out of 15 people, only one liked the oatmeal in this. I made this as recipe states. Everyone said the bread was too tough. The one who liked it just liked the taste of raw oatmeal in it. Sorry, this was a fail here.

This was so delicious. I didn't have eggs so I used the flax seed as you suggested and it turned out great. Thanks!

The bread turned out perfect, the texture was perfect, I thought it was just a little too sweet so I will use less Splenda next time, but my guy said the sweetness was perfect and that this was his favorite Banana Oatmeal Bread so far! Here are the changes that I made:
I used Splenda instead of sugar (will use a bit less next time), "No Sugar Added Apple Sauce" instead of oil, I used low fat buttermilk, the recipe doesn't say whether to use Old Fashioned Oats or Quick Oats, so I used the Quick Oats. I also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon. I use banana's that are very ripe, almost black (brings out the best banana flavor). Will add more banana in the next batch. Thanks for a great recipe!

Pretty decent for banana bread. I used 1/3 whole wheat flour and 2/3 pastry flour. Thanks for posting.

Wonderful! I used brown sugar, half whole wheat flour and stirred in a few chopped peanuts, but otherwise followed the recipe. A half batch yielded nine perfect muffins, and my husb is crazy about them. The texture is not at all dense like I thought it would be, and the oats give a nice chew. I'll definitely keep this recipe. Thanks.
