Oatmeal & Banana loaf
Oatmeal & Banana … slices
I usually make banana bread, it’s a moist and crumbly one which you can sit and finish on your own in one sitting, and why not? I say. Then when I came across this recipe I loved it too. The brown sugar adds the slightly caramelized flavor. Always use overly ripe bananas . You can use cinnamon, it works like magic. It’s slightly denser than the other recipe.

Unsalted Butter (at room temperature) -115gms
