Recipe by LorenLou

A moist, delicious recipe from our former school librarian. A hit with the kids as as after-school snack because of the chocolate chips!

Top Review by Roosie

Moist, flavorful and... *gasp!* healthful?! This is fabulous- extremely moist, with a wonderful banana flavor. It tastes very decadent, despite being pretty healthy! I only used 4 large bananas, which turned out just shy of 3 cups and substituted the flour for whole wheat pastry flour and the sugar for Sucanat. I used about 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. This is the first recipe I've made in my new bundt pan and I am just delighted with how it turned out! I didn't find that the oats were particularly noticeable- actually I think the cook time is long enough on this (mine took about 1 1/2 hours at 350°) that the sort of "melt" and just make the texture of the cake even moister and creamier. The banana flavor in this is just terrific and the texture is superb. I love this cake!
