  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the banana and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat into creamed mixture. Stir in oats and nuts. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

I had some left-over banana's from Christmas and wanted to try a new recipe. My old recipe turned out a dense, drier type of loaf that usually ended up too brown and too crumbly. I surfed onto...

great recipe! I used fat-free vanilla yogurt for half the shortening and it turned out fantastic.

Very good! I lowered it a star because there were no spices. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp cloves. I also substituted butter for the shortening. I believe I used 1/4 cu...

Very good banana nut bread with the added twist of oatmeal. I think I baked it too long this time because it turned out a bit dry, but moistness actually improved as bread sat.

I made this last week for my church group, served it with honey butter and there wasn't a crumb left!
