Botched Banana Bread?

Baking filter: My oven broke in the middle of baking banana bread. What to do now?

Hi. So I was following this "healthy" banana bread recipe:
As you can see, for what it's worth, there is no egg or dairy in the dough. I baked the dough for 20 minutes or probably less before I checked and noticed that my gas oven was no longer working. Since then, I've just left the loaves in the oven while I wait to get it fixed, which I thought would happen faster--it's been 3 hours. My question is: once the oven is fixed later (hopefully sooner than later!) tonight, can I go ahead and bake? Is there any reason why this is a bad idea?
I wonder if either the bread won't rise now or if it's a problem in any other way that the dough has sat at room temp for 3 plus hours.
