Banana-Nut Chip Bread

"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.

    This recipe rates 5* par excellence. Only change: I didn't have regular chocolate chips, so I used 1 cup milk chocolate chips.

    Definitely has a different texture with the oats, but it is soooo good!
