Healthy Banana Oatmeal Bread

Looking for a healthy treat that is as yummy as it is healthy?  Well, you have come to the right place, my friend!  This banana bread is made without any flour, dairy, oil or sugar. I took a basic banana bread recipe and started playing around with it, to see if I could make a much healthier version. I replaced the flour with rolled oats, ground flax and coconut, and completely omitted the sugar. The only sweetener in this recipe comes naturally from the sweet potato and banana. I also added 1/2 cup of raisins to this loaf. I was a little worried that this was going to be a huge disaster, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out.
