Bananalicious! I had three ripe banana's that needed a home and this bread was caught my eye. The oats make this a nice dense loaf. I made three mini loaves which I baked for 25 minutes and they were done perfectly... DS asked me which one was his, lol! DH was just as bad and stood there drooling as I was taking the photos and even grabbed a slice before I was done! The entire house smelled wonderful while it was baking, so it's no wonder... I usually add cinnamon to my banana bread and missed it in this recipe, next time I'll be sure to add some. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders game.
I thought this was a GREAT recipe! I used all whole wheat flour, applesauce for the oil, Splenda for the brown sugar (didn't use brown sugar at all), added 1 tsp cinn & vanilla. I was nervous as to the amount of bananas the recipe wanted, since they come in all sizes, but I used 1 1/2 cups very ripe, mashed bananas & that worked great! I also added a few tbsp of mini choc chips--yum! I also used 1/2 cup Eggbeaters, not regular eggs. I baked these as jumbo muffins & got 10 (350 degrees for 20 min!). They had a delicious flavor & heartiness. Thank you so much for sharing!
This tasted good though it was dry. You definitely need a glass of milk to wash it down! I tossed in 1 Tbsp. minature chocolate chips which was, of course, a nice addition.
Fantastic bread recipe!! I'm always on the lookout for healthier baked good recipes. This one is not only healthy but tastes GREAT, too. Perfect directions. I was worried at step 3 because the consistency was so dense and it didn't look like enough. After adding the mashed bananas and oatmeal , I knew there was no need to worry anymore. My bread took about 50 min. The loaf lasted only one day because my family kept going back for more! ~Aussie/NZ October Swap~
This has to be the first time that I hurried upped and waited for my banana's to go bad!!! Normally they go bad and I think banana bread... This is a very dense bread...I did add 1/2 cup of walnuts cuz I have to have nuts in my banana bread. :) This has a wonderful flavor. Worth every last point. Thanks for posting.
For such an unbelievably healthy bread this has such a terrific taste and texture. The addition of oats and wheat flour really add to this recipe! I took it to a teen Bible study tonight and they gobbled it up! It was their fav of the two breads I brought with me! Good thing I made two loaves! Made for AU/NZ Recipe Tag #14 and will be making it often as it is such a healthy treat! Thanks Dreamer!!
Forget letting this cool down! I used 2 full eggs, 1 egg white and all white flour. Such good texture, and so easy to put together. Mine took 50 minutes. Will be making this again.
My family loved this bread. It was moist and the oatmeal gave it a chewier texture. I did sub whole wheat pastry flour for the whole wheat flour and I only baked mine for 37 minutes and it turned out perfect! Will be making many times!
Good, but not what I was hoping for. I did,n't care for the texture and had hoped the brown sugar would stand out more. Good nutritional info though and a comparatively healthy choice.
This is pretty moist for being low-fat! I made as written, but will use the basic recipe for starters next time. I need nutmeg and walnuts in my banana bread :) Thanks for a healthier version of an old stand-by around here!
