Added a little cinnamon. Delicious.
This actualy came out moist, I was surprised.The only thing is, it is kind of bland, it is tastes like it is missing something.Next time I will add some spices, like cinnamon and or nutmeg.
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.
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.
I was looking for a banana bread recipe to make and I came across this one without milk or eggs and figured I'd give it a try. One of my girls has allergies and does not get to enjoy banana bread with the others, so now she can. It was delicious. I made two loaves and both were gone in a day and a half.
