Substituted chia seeds for the flax, as well as vanilla extract for the rum in the glaze but kept the rum in the batter. Delicious!

Delicious! I omitted the flax (and added extra flour in its place) and cut the sugar by half and I thought it was perfect! Yum!

We did not care of this bread and ended up throwing it away. In fairness, I did leave out the flaxseed, as I did not want to purchase a whole bag for one recipe. But according to the internet, it is typically used as a egg or oil substitute. Since this recipe call both, I am not sure its purpose. The rum flavored glaze was very strong and the center bread part was moist, but just ok.

So moist and full of flavor! I did omit the flax. I used pecans grinded to a powder. Def a keeper!

My son's favorite dessert is bananas foster, so I had to try this. He really liked it. It is a great way to use up ripe bananas rather than the usual banana bread.

I substituted quick oats for the flaxseed and i did not put the glaze on top. I tried to get the bread out of the pan alittle too soon so it sort of split....but it still tasted pretty good. I will make it again (and let it cool longer!) and I am planning on trying whole wheat flour instead of white and I will put the glaze on it.

I followed the recipe but used spiced rum which we had on hand. Came out great and mother in-law wanted recipe for a card club gathering next week.
