Banana Oatmeal Loaf

I must admit that I'm a huge bread fan, I usually go for whole wheat breads, but I'll really taste any type of bread I find. I tend to use bananas only in my post workout frappes, but I had a couple of them left and didn't want them to go to waste, so I decided to try out this recipe from a new book I bought. It's a super moist bread that has a bit of a crunch from the crust and texture from the oatmeal. I used and recommend regular oats, because they have more of the nutrients than instant oats have, but if you find oats that have been processed even less those will be healthier, but it really depends on what you prefer. I can see this bread working perfectly for a light weekend brunch, or packing it as a nice snack during a hiking trip or a day at the beach. Hope you like this recipe!
