Banana Oatmeal Bread

This hearty bread is amazing toasted with a schmear of cream cheese or just on its own, and it can be made ahead and frozen.

Note: Make sure your bananas are at least very ripe, or overripe. You can even use frozen bananas, if you allow them to thaw and come to room temperature first (cold bananas will make the batter cold and the bread will take longer to bake).
