I made this exactly as written with no additions or subtractions. It didn't do much to satisfy my sweet craving. It needed more sugar and/or honey. It also needed more banana to counteract the drying effect of using all whole wheat flour. Submitted by:

WOW!! Really good, I made these with apple sauce instead of margarine, used almond milk instead of real milk and added vanilla and cinnamon too. They came out perfect at only 80 CALORIES each!! I used a 12 muffin tin with cooking spray Submitted by:

I didn't have any honey so I substituted it (and the sugar) with splenda, the margarine with apple sauce; egg whites with egg beaters, milk with 2% milk... and it turned out yummy! (Hubby went back for seconds.) Submitted by:

I enjoyed this recipe for 5 days. Some fat free cream cheese with it heated in the microwave really sets it off! Submitted by:

I made this recipe and added 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 cup of nonfat plain greek yogurt to make it extra moist. It was great! Submitted by:

I made this today and it was amazing. It's the best tasting cake that I have found so far on SparkRecipes that is low calorie. My boyfriend was really impressed that he couldn't taste a difference even though I used the wheat flour. Great recipe, I will definitely be making it again. Submitted by:

I was also surprised that the bread turned out moist and not too dense. My first time with whole wheat flour. I also cut the fat in half by using half applesauce, and added a tsp vanilla and 2 tsp cinnamon. But I was a little disappointed with the lack of flavor. Maybe chopped walnuts would help Submitted by:

You're not gonna believe this but I found out you can replace margarine w/ flaxseed, so I did in this recipe. It's not bad! I used white flour (all I had) & extra sugar instead of Splenda (I'm weird about artificial stuff). Haven't done the calculator on my version yet. Submitted by:

I too substituted unsweetened applesauce for the margarine, and I only had all-purpose flour. But nice to have a banana bread recipe that doesn't have a million calories! Submitted by:

I loved it. I, too, doctored up the basic recipe. I had 5 large very ripe bananas and used them all. I used 1 tsp cinnamon, 'the pink sugar substitute' and about 1/4 cup choc chips, baked in muffin pan; made 12 nice sized muffins which were wonderful. The whole wheat flour added a nice crunch Submitted by:

I thought this was really good for a low-fat alternative. My family really enjoyed it, and I had a slice in the morning as part of my breakfast for a few days. It satisfied my cravings for muffins...yeah. Submitted by:

I made this using Splenda and Splenda brown sugar blend and omitted the sugar and honey since I am diabetic and wanted to avoid the extra sugar. I added an extra tablespoon of water. They came out great! Submitted by:

I haven't made this recipe yet -- I am a little bit wary of artificial sweeteners. But a suggestion for low fat banana bread in general: try using apple sauce in lieu of margarine. It works amazingly well, and adds a little extra flavour. Submitted by:

ya know this is wonderful.
If you actually use I can't believe it's not butter spray you could even save some more calories and such. For this spray is liquid, tastes great and has no fat or calories in it. I can't use butter or margarine anymore. :-)
