Oat Banana Bread

3-4 medium bananas, very ripe
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
In a medium mixing bowl, beat peeled bananas with an electric mixer on medium speed, until completely liquid.  Add sugar, oil, and eggs.  Beat well.

On top of banana mixture, gently combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and oats.  After combining dry ingredients, mix into wet ingredients, until completely mixed.  Stir in nuts.  (I only put nuts in part of the bread I made, because some people at my house like nuts, but others don't!)  Pour batter into greased muffin pans, or greased bread pans.  The pans should be about 3/4 full.
 Bake at 350°F.  Bake muffins for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Bake bread for 40-50 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove to a wire rack, and cool completely.  Serve with cream cheese.
