"This is so good and reminds me of a real moist kind of a sweet quick bread. Everybody asks for the recipe: this bread is moist, and easy to make too. Note: If you are using frozen blueberries, you can thaw them in the microwave for about 3 minutes. However, you need to increase the amount of blueberries to 3/4 cup."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 5/8 cups
quick cooking oats
With a couple of modifications this is total 5 star bread. I followed the other reviewers advice and used applesauce instead of shortening. I had some so why not cut the fat?! I also used 1 full cup of frozen (not thawed) blueberries. Any fruit bread I make gets a dash of cinnamon, fresh nutmeg and vanilla -just a dash of each. I used 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar also (personal preference) I baked it in 3 mini loaf pans on a cookie sheet and it still took almost the full cook time. Crunchy on the outside and moist and yummy in the center! I don't think I would try this bread in a large bread pan, it may have never been cooked through. My 10 year old ate almost a full tin by himself! Perfect for a Sunday morning treat! Thanks
This bread is wonderful! I've never been a big banana bread fan but really like this one. My family likes it as well.
Very moist! I used the applesauce in place of the shortening and decreased the sugar as suggested previously. I also used 1 cup frozen blueberries. I omitted the nuts and added some more oatmeal. My husband and I really like it especially since it is so healthy and delicious at the same time.
I made this while caring for my 5 week old AND making dinner, it was VERY simple! I used frozen (no need to thaw) blueberries (about 1 cup) and put them in lined muffun tins to decrease the baking time (around 25 min). They were delicious!
So I prob would give it 5 stars if I hadn't substituted all of the shortening w/apple sauce as other reviewers did. Next time I'll try half apple sauce, half oil - the sauce makes the crust a bit rubbery rather than classic crunchy, it also changes the flavor some. I was trying to be healthy, but some things aren't worth it. I'm going to make it again, and I do think putting the oil back into it will make it an exceptional bread. Very hearty. The only other change I made - well my husband got blackberries instead of blueberries so banana blackberry quick bread it was. I was hestitant at first but the berries held together and came out great in the bread. A nice variation. As for my husband, we are going to go to the grocery store together and review our fruits.
I have finally found the most far out and fantastic banana/blueberry bread recipe ever created. I'm not worthy...
My family loved it. I liked the way the ingredients were combined. It seemed lighter than other banana breads, and I like that. I put in a bit less sugar, as my bananas were rather sweet. Thank you for this neat recipe!
I've tried several banana bread recipes and this is by far the best! I am not a big fan of banana bread (my husband loves it and I can't bear to let bananas go to waste.) I made a couple of modifications: I doubled the blueberries (fresh), added half t vanilla, used half brown sugar and half white sugar, walnuts (no pecans on hand), used butter in place of shortening, & replaced half the butter with applesauce. I also used quick cooking Irish oatmeal instead of rolled oats...not sure if that makes a difference in flavor in a bread but it came out great!
