Reviews for Carrot Banana Bread
"Needed to use up my carrots and a couple of very ripe bananas. Went through my recipe box and found this. Amazing, I added a little fresh nutmeg to enhance the flavor of the carrots what a surprise the bread is beautiful color, wonderful texture and the flavor is simply beyond compare so happy I made this this recipe is incredible."
"a very nice recipe- not too sweet, just right. It went together very quickly- next time I may add more cinnamon or a bit of ginger just because I like the spices"
"Used equal amount of applesauce ILO oil; substituted raisins for walnuts. Baked 70 minutes in pyrex loaf pan in convection oven. Quick and tasty."
"my 15 yr old daughter made this last Sunday for breakfast....It was amazing. A keeper... Thanks."

"I LIKE THAT IT HAS CARROTS IN IT! ANYWHERE YOU CAN ADD EXTRA VEGGIES IS A PLUS. YOU CAN'T REALLY TASTE THE CARROTS, BUT I LIKED IT BETTER THAN REGULAR OLD BANANA BREAD! I USED WALNUTS BECAUSE THATS WHAT I HAD. I WILL MAKE THIS RECIPE AGAIN!"
