    Oh my gosh! I made this tonight and just cut into it. It is fabulous! Thank you for this delicious recipe! Do I have to share with everyone?

  3. i microwave a bowl of oatmeal then divide it up for my husband, kids and myself then add fruit(usually frozen blueberries) and then milk….one of my daughters prefers applesause rather than milk:) my toddler usually asks for seconds or thirds:)

  4. I have some bananas that are almost overripe – I need this!! And I’m totally looking for those oats at the store – not only for this bread, but my hubby will go crazy for them!

  5. Rena

    this looks incredible!! can’t wait to try the quick cooking steel cut oats. I like my oatmeal plain w half milk and half water. sometimes w some cinnamon on top!

  6. Whoa! This banana bread looks amazing. Homemade banana bread is one of my favorite recipes to make when I have overripe bananas lingering on the counter. That streusel sounds amazing, and I love that you used roasted bananas. Pinned.

    I love my oatmeal with dried cranberries, brown sugar, raisins, walnuts, pecans, almonds, every combination! I can’t wait to try this recipe. It sounds scrumptious!

    I eat oatmeal every morning and I also like to use it for baking cookies and bars. My very favorite oatmeal recipe is one I’ve been making for years – no bake cookies.

  9. Pat Torgrimson

    I love to eat oatmeal in the am. I like to put some in my smoothie and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are our favorite!

    This banana bread looks so good! I like mixing peanut butter with honey in oatmeal, making it with coconut milk and shredded coconut. I also like using it in a number of baking and savory dishes too,I love how versatile oatmeal is:)

  11. Cortney Shellenberger

    We love using Quaker oatmeal to make muffins and cookies! We made oatmeal carrot cake cookies with Quaker oats last night! They make a great breakfast too! Can’t wait to Ty this banana bread! I love the idea of baking them first!

    I love to make steel cut oatmeal with peanut butter, cinnamon, and diced bananas! So excited to see 3 minute steel cut oats!

  13. Jackie

    Usually crumbled on top of my dessert. But I also enjoy it mixed with fruit, brown sugar and milk in the morning! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  14. Leslie G.

    I love to make my oatmeal with Vanilla Almond Breeze Milk. I toss in some walnuts and pecans with a little cinnamon. Yummy!

  15. My favorite way to enjoy Steel Cut Quaker Oatmeal is with my daughters. We each have a bowl as a desert in the evening with our favorite topping, Idaho Huckleberrys.

    I love oatmeal with butter, half and half, maple syrup, and berries. I especially love the steel cut oats. I can’t wait to make this banana bread. What a great giveaway!!!

  17. debby

    I like oatmeal with any kind of berry and maybe some coconut, but I also bake with it and it makes a perfect crumb topping. I would love to win the basket of goodness, thanks for the chance.

  18. Bianca

    I love using oatmeal to make a yummy oatmeal cake with a sweet coconut icing on top. Serve it warm and can even add a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce. Yum!

    I have to admit, my favorite way of eating oatmeal isn’t really healthy…haha…I use the oats ant make oatmeal cookies. However, in my house we use them for everything, I put oats in my meatloaf, I just love the texture that it gives it! I’m the only one that eats oatmeal in the house and I love it with blackberry yogurt, I scoop my yogurt out in the bowl and dump a handful of steel cut oats in on top of it! Yummy!

  20. Roasted banana sounds so intriguing! Reminds me of what browning butter does to the flavor…yum!

    My favorite way to enjoy oatmeal is in granola form. The Whole Foods near us sells an addicting Blueberry Almond Granola and I bet we go through 5 pints of it a week! Oops 🙂

  21. Allison

    I love cooking it with raisins and dried apples so they rehydrate as they cook. I add cinnamon, brown sugar and pecans. Yum!

  22. linda
