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 followed the recipe exactly, but it turned out to be dry without much banana flavor. I won't be making it again."

"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."
