Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I like this bread. I made it with 1/2 brown sugar and 1/3 of the flour I used whole grain. The only problem is the calories...it's pretty high. Next time I will use an applesauce recipe to cut some fat. Submitted by:

Wonderful! I used Splenda instead of sugar, smart balance for the butter, and replaced half of the flour with white whole wheat flour. I also added a tsp of cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla. I had to cook it in a star shaped pan, because my sister doesn't have a normal one. Submitted by:

No sugar, used Maple Syrup instead (not much needed with super ripe bananas)
No eggs
Added Flax = nice nutty flavor
Added a little vanilla and cinnamon in addition to the nutmeg
Fantastic :)

Perfect! I am so happy to still see some recipes without the sugar substitutes, since I am not a big fan of them. To be healthy I am just careful with how much sugar I consume. Thank you! Amazing bread! Submitted by:

Very good! I used several of the suggested substitutions (used brown sugar/sugar/Splenda; added vanilla, cinnamon, & flax seed, and substituted part whole wheat flour). It's not the same as the original, but I'll take a flexible recipe any day! Submitted by:

OMGoodness.. Delicious! I used Splenda Zero Calorie sugar and cinnamon but I forgot to add vanilla like some of the other posters suggested. I didn't have regular flour so I used Bread Flour (like the kind you'd use for Bread Machines), they came out fabulous. This recipe is a keeper for sure! Submitted by:

I made this banana bread with 1/4c splenda, 1/4c brown sugar and 1/2c white sugar and it was great! I also used half fatfree tub margarine and the rest light butter and added cinnamon. Made 8 mini loaves, yum! Submitted by:

I thought this bread was very good & easy to make, but I wish it had just a bit more flavor. Next time I will try it with half brown sugar & vanilla, like others recommended. I did add a little cinnamon (not much--I'd add more next time) and some walnuts. Submitted by:

Delicious and easy - I did use the half sugar and half brown sugar, added a few drops of vanilla, and topped with nuts - made 12 muffins. Thank you, I will surely add this recipe to my favorites. Submitted by:

I wonder why so many recipes on here use white sugar instead of Splenda?? Seems strange on a health site. I can understand it inside women's magazines. Submitted by:

FANTASTIC! I subbed 1/2 the white sugar for brown sugar, no nutmeg, and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. It made 6 jumbo muffins. Submitted by:

I am on a low carbohydrate diet. Any suggestions around reducing the three bananas? Sugar substitute works and really reduces the carbs. Would a single banana and banana flavouring do the trick? Or would something else have to be added. Tastes great but I can only eat 1/3 slice! Submitted by:

First time baking banana bread and this recipe turned out perfectly! Using Splenda instead of sugar saves about 50-60 calories per serving. Highly recommended! Submitted by:
