My 12 yr old grandson made your delicious recipe today by himself to earn points toward his scout cooking badge :) He made two mini loaf pans. One with nuts, one without.

He was very happy and proud with the results. Not to mention, he, his Papa and myself reaped the YUMMY benefits!!!

I made this today after reading the reviews about it being to dry I decided to try adding some extra bananas and some apple sauce did the job had to cook about an extra 10 min but it's so good

Very tasty! It was a tad bit dry but that didn't bother me. I used 3 over ripe bananas instead of just ripe. Rather than nuts I added a half cup of chocolate chips to the batter and then I poured it into 4 mini loaf pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes. I like the idea of adding cinnamon. Next time iIll do that !
