MY REVIEW

I can't review flavor yet as it's currently baking away but the recipe was simple and quick! A few changes though: Splenda in place of sugar, three egg whites & one whole egg (we're watching our cholesterol intake), homemade fruit sauce instead of apple sauce and since everyone commented about "soupy" batter I added a 1/4 cup of hemp seeds to think and add a little extra nutrition punch. Let you know how it tastes!

Fantastic! I subbed the apple sauce & oil for equal amounts coconut oil, & used 1 &1/2 cup brown sugar. It came out dense & moist & actually held it's shape when I cut it! Plus it's the first banana bread I've baked that only took 45min to cook. Will make again!!
