Use food processor or blender to chop oats until they resemble flour. Mix with all the dry ingredients.
Mash bananas and other wet ingredients together. (I use a food processor.) And add to the dry ingredients. Pour into a loaf pan sprayed with PAM.
Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Turn out and cool before slicing. Don't worry! It is great warm too, if you can't wait that long.
Will make 16 generous slices, as shown in photo.
