This was good but a little too healthy to satisfy my craving for moist banana bread. I used very ripe bananas but it still had a more subtle banana flavor and was a bit dry.
Delicious, moist & flavorful! My 4 & 1 year olds even loved it! I added 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons ground flax seed, and I sprinkled the top with about 1/3 cup chocolate chips. I didn't have oat bran, so I used 1/2 cup quick oats. I will definitely make this one again!
I got a bag full of over ripe bananas from my office. I made 2 batches. Just wonderful! Followed recipe as directed, I will be making this often. Thank you for posting Susie. Made for Potluck Tag.
A wonderfully moist nana bread that has a different texture than the normal banana bread. A good different that is waaayyyy more healthy than using all white flour. I ground my own old fashioned oats with a food processor and that could have made the difference in making it a bit more dense than store bought. I used 4 ripe bananas for a very bananay taste:-) Also, use 3 mini-loaves instead of one large. That way I can share more easily.! TY Susie.~ Made for 123Hitwonders.
For me this is a total winner. It's healthier than the average banana bread, it uses ingredients that I always have on hand, it's moist and delicious. I used 3 very over ripe bananas that I had tossed into the freezer. I trimmed back on the sugars *some* by using 1/4 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. I would recommend using oat flour, do you know how long it takes the get anything resembling flour from old fashioned oats in the food processor? I didn't LOL. I stopped at grainy whole wheat flour texture. The loaf didn't seem to suffer from the coarser grind. I must also say that this produces the most wonderful aroma while baking. It's very tender and the flavor is second to none.
This made a dense, moist loaf. DH complained it was "bananay" enough but that maybe because only half of my bananas were overripe, the other half were just ripe... The flavors in this are very subtle, it's not overpowering and would make for a nice snack with some tea. I like that it's got a decent amount of protein compared to sugar and will likely make this again, probably with a bit more cinnamon
