Very tasty! Moist with an intoxicating aroma.
With this recipe, you can bake a standard Banana Bread in a rectangular pan. But then keep it in the oven longer (40-45 minutes). If you don’t have walnuts and raisins, use candied fruit, chopped apricots, and any nuts, such as unsalted peanuts. In addition to the walnuts and oatmeal flakes, I used some chopped peeled almonds for the sprinkles, but this is optional.
