quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups
5 Stars. A wonderful, tasty bread. Used 1/2 Cup applesauce and 1/2 Cup butter in place of shortening, used 3 bananas for a moist bread, no raisins. The crust came out really well! Lovely.
We really didn't find this bread too impressive, which suprised me. I followed the instructions to a T, only substituting currants for the raisins. The bread didn't rise at all, and ended up really dark. It was moist, and the taste was ok, but the texture was really strange. Maybe that is just my own pre-concieved idea about what a quick-bread texture is supposed to be like though.
I have made MANY banana breads, but this one is by far the BEST one EVER.
It is so very moist, and delicious. The oats give it such a wonderful texture!
It is a wonderful bread to have with tea, or coffee.
My hubby LOVED it! It was a hit over here in my house!! Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!
I call this recipe 'BOB' (: Great bread, have made several times! I really like the addition of oatmeal to the traditional BB...However, I sub 1/2 applesauce, 1/2 butter to make it a bit healthier instead of the shortening. Turned out very nice! Thank you! Note: only use 2 small bananas in this in the posted pic. Only added a 'splash' of milk.
Light, moist and flavorful. I used 1/4 c applesauce and 1/4 c butter in place of the shortening, and reduced the sugar to 3/4 C. I also used old fashioned oats in place of the quick rolled oats, and soaked them in the milk and applesauce while assembling the other ingredients (adding the oat mix with the whole raisins). Finally, I added a pinch of ground cloves and a tablespoon of ground flax seeds.
I made this into muffins this morning. Baked them for about 18 minutes. They turned out great! I have rated this recipe before and really liked it. My daughters & I love to bake. We have been searching for the PERFECT banana oatmeal muffin recipe. We have decided this is it! Thanks for a great recipe.
I've made about 15 loaves of banana bread for a bake sale today and this recipe was the big winner!! I used 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 butter for the shortening, a full teaspoon of vanilla, and a 1/2 teaspoon of allspice. It produces a very dense, chewy loaf of bread. If you're want for light and fluffy keep looking, but this bread tastes great!
This is a very good bread. The oatmeal really makes a difference. It's not very sweet, but it is very moist and good. I just made it yesterday it's almost completely gone. Thanks for sharing, Carolyn!
