"You shouldn't review any recipe, unless you make it exactly as directed. This is one of those great recipes where you don't change a thing! Moist, tasty, and easy to make."

"I am a banana bread connoisseur and this is one of the best recipes I have ever made! I can't imagine anyone not giving this 5 stars, it is so good. I used regular eggs and regular sour cream. I did however add extra sour cream for extra moistness. I would imagine that the yogurt- flavored or plain would be great as well. My loaf was gone in just a couple of hours. This is going in my recipe box!"

"I have made this recipe several times. I use brown rice flour & greek yogurt instead of all-purpose flour and sour cream. I also add some unsweetened applesauce to make up for the dryness of the brown rice flour. Wonderful!!!"

"Sorry to be a party pooper. Not my favorite banana bread recipe. It's missing that "wow" factor for me.

"Loved this! But, as always I made changes. Used eggs, not substitute. Used regular sour cream, not low fat. But I did sub 9 heaping Tlbs of flax seed and lowered "veg" oil by 3+ Tlbs. Also added lots of blueberry juice infused "Craisins" and a heavy dose of vanilla bean paste. Doubled the recipe and turned out great. Next time though I will add another banana, mine were on the small side. This will be my "go-to" banana bread recipe from now on:) Husband loved it and he's the bb lover!"
