"Whenever I have extra bananas this is the recipe I reach for to make banana nut bread. In fact I have shared it 5 times with different friends; it's that good."
"Omitted the walnuts due to allergies. Sprinkled turbinado sugar on top before baking. It disappeared fast, definitely will double the recipe next time!"
"The best banana bread. Followed recipe except I used just over a cup of banana, and used pecans (ran out of walnuts). Then I made into 12 muffins. Baked at 325 for 35 minutes. PERFECT!"
"I've been making this recipe for years! I found it in a church cookbook. I'm now famous for this recipe among my family, friends and coworkers. It's so moist, unlike most banana bread recipes. Yes, it comes out dark. It has sort of chewy crust that everyone loves. I can't say enough about this recipe. It's absolutely the best!!"
"This recipe is fast, easy and delicious! I also used less sugar and oil than specified along with extra banana and milk. I also used half brown sugar instead of all white and I added some cinnamon and allspice. I LOVE the idea of putting some of the nuts on top before baking (I'll be sure to do that next time). Also, I made 12 muffins and that baking time was about 35-40 min. YUMMY!!"
"I gave this recipe three stars as 1) canola oil is so unhealthy. I used organic coconut oil instead, plus about a tablespoon of butter. 2) I used 1/2 cup of sugar and used 3 large overripe bananas instead of two (I didn't measure but it was probably more than the 1 cup of bananas called for in the recipe). In addition, because of the extra banana, I was able to cut the eggs down to one but I did use a large egg.I added 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chocolate chips, as my family likes that, but they aren't necessary as I tasted the mixture before baking and it was plenty sweet. I wasn't sure about baking it at 325 degrees...so halfway through I upped it to 350 degrees. I don't think it made any difference...but I do have a convection oven."
"My grandson (he’s 5) and I LOVE this recipe. He loves that we have a DRY bowl AND a WET bowl. Sometimes when our bananas aren’t “rotten” enough, we will pick up some organic banana baby food. Works great! He calls it our Banana Buck bread. We like pecans as our “Bucks” instead of walnuts."
"Perfect banana bread, just as written. However, due to health reasons I have successfully substituted coconut milk for the buttermilk, reduced the sugar to 1cup and reduced the oil to 1/4 cup by adding an extra banana. And just for personal taste and to look pretty, I like to sprinkle the walnuts (mixed with a bit of sugar) on the top of the bread just prior to baking."
