Number of Servings: 30


    1/3 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup honey
    2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 eggs
    1 cup mashed bananas
    3/4 tsp. vanilla
    1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup oats
    1-1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 cup chopped walnuts
    1 Tbl brown sugar
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/8 cup oats


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9" x 5" loaf pan. (I double the recipe and use 3 of the disposable 7.5" x 3.5" loaf pans to give away.)

2. In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and honey until creamy. Add brown sugar and stir until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla and mashed banans, stirring well after each addition.

3. In a smaller bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to blend, then stir into liquid ingredients. Add oats and chopped walnuts; stir well.

4. Pour batter into prepared pans.

5. For topping, combine 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 1 Tbl brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/8-1/4 cup oats. (Feel free to experiment and increase or decrease to your taste.) Sprinkle the topping over the batter in the pan. Lightly press topping into batter with back of clean spoon. (Don't push the topping underneath the batter; very lightly press it down on top of the batter.)

6. Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If using 1 large loaf pan, the time is usually 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Note: Allow to cool before cutting into servings. I cut straight down the middle lengthwise, then make slices widthwise. You can get 20 servings out of the smaller loaf pans and at least 30 servings out of the large loaf.
