Ingredients: (what I used)
1 cup white sugar (3/4 cup)
1 cup butter
1/2 cup buttermilk (1/2 cup skim milk)
1 cup mashed bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats (1 cup old fashioned oats)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (1/2 cup sliced almonds)
1/2 cup flaked coconut (3/4 cup flaked coconut)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a medium bowl, mix flour, oats, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition. Mix in buttermilk, bananas and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix well. Finally, fold in the nuts, coconut and 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
3. Pour batter into 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, (mine took about 45 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
**This is SO delicious! I served it at playgroup and it was a hit! I'd maybe use fewer chocolate chips, but there weren't any complaints!
