"I have made this bread several times and always get raves wherever I take it. Had bananas and carrots to use up. Made two loaves one with nuts and one without to take to work. It is so moist and the flavor with the cinnamon is just amazing. This has now become my go to banana bread. Thanks for the recipe!"

"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"

"Very tasty! Carrots must subdue strong banana flavor. I made 12 mini muffins and one loaf in a smaller pan."

"Delicious! I doubled the cinnamon and used 1 cup whole wheat flour + 1 cup all purpose flour. And I used walnuts instead of pecans. So good! One of the best banana breads I've made.

"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!"
