Very healthy bread. I tasted the oat bran a lot, so I'd reduce it to 1/4 cup next time. I'd also add some cinnamon to the batter for more flavor instead of just sprinkling on top. Also more sugar, up it to 1 cup since the bread was not too sweet. I only had 3 large bananas so the banana flavor was light. Baked up in less than 50 minutes. Great bread for the health conscious.
