Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If desired, garnish with some more rolled oats (I only used about 2 teaspoons extra for each one; 4 teaspoons in total). The stick test might not come out very clean at the end because the strawberries tend to fall to the bottom and they tend to leave a certain amount of residue.

I added honey (1 tablespoon ) to bananas and a pinch of salt. Came out hearty and a great way to use up my strawberries and bananas

I was looking for a healthier version of a quick bread to use up some bananas and strawberries. I thought there were several problems with this bread. I thought it would have a lot of flavor with the bananas, strawberries, cinnamon,& vanilla, but, I thought it was lacking something. I think it may need some extra cinnamon and maybe even a touch of salt to bring out the flavors. It was a little drier than most quick breads, but, it did use less oil. Maybe adding a little applesauce would help. My husband thought it needed to be sweeter also. I guess that would defeat the healthier side of it if more sugar was added though! Maybe a mixture of brown and white sugar? The previous reviewer suggested putting the bread into one loaf pan. Although it does make shorter loaves I think I would keep them in two pans. It took 25 minutes to bake in two pans it was perfectly golden on top. I think if you put it into one pan it would burn on the top and bottom before it is cooked. I would not make this again - there would be too many changes to it for me to make the recipe to our liking.

Like the author of this recipe I was looking for a way to use up bananas and strawberries.This recipe is good and I will make it again, however the instruction to use 2, 9 by 5 loaf pans is unnecessary. You can easily cook it all in one. Because I didn't know better and only had one loaf pan I made half as muffins. Still tastes good but ended up with a short loaf. Next time I make this I will add a tablespoon of molasses as it could use a little brown sugar flavor.
