This bread is delicious. Chocolate chips in banana bread is something I have had before but not oatmeal. The combination is a very good taste. I enjoyed this bread for breakfast the most. Frozen bananas is what I had to use and the recipe turned out great.

Perfect bread! Made mine into bars for quicker baking, about 35 minutes. I might try butterscotch chips next time :) oh, I did use vegetable oil instead of shortening & it worked great!

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!
