Reviews for Carrot Banana Bread
"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!"
"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."
"amazing every time! Even people who aren't big carrot fans love this bread. :0)"
"Very tasty! Carrots must subdue strong banana flavor. I made 12 mini muffins and one loaf in a smaller pan."
"Delicious. Will be making it in the future"
"this banana bread recipe is great and it beats my old has been recipe!"
"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.~ Theresa"
