"Leftover bananas inspired me to make this homespun bread," recounts Raymond Lux from Arlington, Texas. The loaves are nicely spiced with nutmeg and include lots of crunchy nuts, sweet chocolate chips and hearty oats.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat bananas, sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; stir into banana mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
