Banana Oat Bread

Banana Oat Bread created by Riverside Len

The oats and nuts in this banana bread make it different and give it a great flavor and texture. It's one of my favorite quick breads, and I probably make it more frequently than any other! Don't forget to sprinkle the oats on top for a great crunch! This recipe came from Shanna at the IBS message boards at www.helpforibs.com, although I modified it slightly.

    This is a great recipe, I'm always looking for ways to bake with oats.<br/><br/>I made some minor changes, I cut the sugars to 1/3 cup each of the granulated and brown, with makes a total of 2/3 cup. The recipe as written, 6 tablespoons of each amounts to 3/4 cup total. I also cut the salt in half as baking soda has a lot of sodium. Next time I'll omit the salt altogether. I made it with old fashioned oats as I don't use the quick kind. I also added some chocolate chips. I baked it for 1 hour and 5 minutes.<br/><br/>I liked the flavor and texture a lot. I think it tastes better the nest day. I'll be making this again.<br/><br/>An observation. Bananas vary in size and the amount of banana used has a big impact on the moistness and texture. While this worked out great for me this time, next time might be different. I wish banana bread recipes would list the amount of mashed bananas in volume rather than so many bananas. Next time I'll measure the mashed bananas and make a note of it (and hope I have it right, lol).
