Sprinkle the top with oats and raw sugar.

Frozen bananas can be used for the recipe. Thaw them at room temperature and drain off any excess liquid before using so that the batter does not become watery.
Chocolate chips or other nuts can be added to create variety.
The recipe can be used for banana bread, and it should be baked in a loaf pan. The baking time will have to be increased to about 45-50 minutes.
