Banana Oatmeal Bread

I let my bananas get WAY too ripe (kept forgetting to put them in my lunch box when I went to work!), and I was determined not to waste them. so I went searching for a banana bread recipe that was Weight Watchers friendly, and found one:
I tried a little slice with some light cream cheese. And I figured it would make a nice treat on Easter morning too!

I baked the batter in two mini loaf tins instead of one regular-sized loaf pan for about 35-40 minutes , so I figure that's 2&1/2 Points Plus Values for one tenth of a mini-loaf.
And yes, it's good!

Looks great, and since I have some very old bananas in my freezer, I will try it out for Easter morning myself. Thanks! Love T

Frustration. Enjoying a tasty cup of coffee, I had no idea I was missing banana-oatmeal bread. Sigh! Looks scrumptious.

something i do with over ripe bananas is peel and then freeze them. i put them in the food processor with just a little bit of milk and end up with a (form of) banana ice cream. your banana bread looks great.
