MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2014

I ended up using almost all wheat flour and it still was amazing, delicious and moist. My husband usually hates the healthier recipes I make but he loved this banana bread. Making it again today!

MY REVIEW

Very nice and moist. I quadrupled the recipe and it made a nice amount. Everyone loved it. Next time I might add some walnuts and maybe some more whole wheat flour in it, but otherwise awesome!
