This recipe's special because it uses no eggs or milk. I know that there are many people who are on milk-free diets, so this bread is perfect for them.

"I was looking for something low fat. This is delicious and fits into my calorie and low fat diet. It is delicious and is a great dessert when looking for something sweet and still healthy."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 27, 2010

"This has a wonderful taste! It is much lighter than my mother's recipe! I doubled the recipe but then found out that I did not have quite enough mashed banana to make 2 cups so I added some unsweetened applesauce to the bananas to equal 2 cups. Worked well! Doubling the recipe makes 1 loaf pan and 6 mini-loafs. The mini-loafs only took 30 minutes to cook."
