Reviews forOat-Chip Banana Bread
"This is my family's favorite bread, I have probably made this over 45 times since I found the recipe.My trick is to use whole oats and chop them up in the food procceser. It makes people guess at what that crunchy, wheaty flavor is."
"I made this bread adding a handful of walnuts and using butterscotch chips. The result was very good! The oatmeal gives it a great taste! LOVE IT!"
