"I used our slightly over-ripe bananas and this recipe was fantastic!"
"This recipe is just excellent. The only thing I did different was to add about 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Don't know why I did it but it really was delicious. Would never use my old recipe again!"
"This is my new favorite banana bread recipe. It turned out very moist. I sprinkled the walnuts just on the top."
"i made this recipe for my boyfriend and his co workers they loved it!! i minused the walnuts and added pecans and maraschino cherries came out great!!"
"I substituted coconut flour for regular flour to make this gluten free. Always make sure to add xanthan gum when using gluten free flours."
