quick cooking oats
1 1/2 teaspoons
semisweet chocolate chips
This cake is good. In order to cut some fat and calories, I only used 1/2 cup butter and added 1/2 applesauce to make up for it. I also cut the sugar in half to only 1/2 cup. I didn't have buttermilk, so used light sour cream instead. I also used mini chocolate chips and left out the nuts and coconut. I still thought it was yummy and even my picky boys ate it.
This was seriously horrible. I expected so much from it. I think it just had too many ingredients/conflicting flavors.
Oh my. Soooo good. My husband and I can't get enough of this. We left out the coconut and walnuts and it still turned out beautiful--great flavor and texture. After mashing 3 bananas, I had a quarter cup more than is called for but I used it all anyway. Worked great. This is a new family favorite! Thank you.
Turned out great!! Knowing a teen boy would scarf all of this down fast, I made a few healthy subs...1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup light margarine, 1/2 cup apple sauce, 1/2 cup non-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup ww flour, 1 cup old fashioned oats and I used milk choc chips (what I had on hand). Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
This was really yummy! I used half the butter, and replaced the other half with fat free vanilla yogurt to lower the fat a bit. I only had a cup of chocolate chips so I used the in the cake part and sprinkled brown sugar on the top instead. It was really good and gave it a crunchy-sticky topping. Next time I will sprinkle the chocolate chips and the brown sugar on it. Will definitley make again!
this is a very good recipe. i like the chocolate chips in it, but the added chocolate chips on top is too much for my taste. definatly will be making this again, without the extra chocolate on top.
Phenomenal! Such a moist and delicious cake. My alterations were minor, and only because I lacked 2 ingredients. Instead of buttermilk, I used regular milk and a splash of lemon juice to curdle. Instead of walnuts I used sliced almonds, which were fabulous in the moist cake and mixed very nicely with the coconut. Finally, I added about 1/4 cup of milled flaxseed just to give it a little healthy kick. mmmmmm!
This is a great cake for a twist to the traditional banana bread. I made this minus the coconut and nuts and it was super! Yummy!
