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.
I love this recipe! My husband does not eat bananas but loves this and repeatedly asks for it. I use 1/2 cup sugar and add 4 bananas. It comes out so moist and full of flavor.
