This banana bread was moist and delicious! I loved the addition of oatmeal. Such a fun twist. Why make banana bread in the slow cooker instead of the oven? For me, the bread seems to cook more evenly. In addition, if you're going to be out of the house it's not going to be detrimental if you can't get home exactly on time to take the banana bread out. In the summer when it's hot, the slow cooker doesn't heat up your kitchen like the oven would. You could definitely make this recipe in the oven, if you prefer. Cook at 350 for about 55 minutes. 4 stars.
