    The new recipe was a real hit for breakfast today. I made 12 muffins instead of baking it in a loaf pan and they were moist, delicious and a very healthy alternative to regular banana bread recipes. - 7/8/07

    Yummy!I too used 1/2 whole wheat flour, used 1 whole egg and a tsp vanilla. My four bananas measured 1 1/4 cups and I baked it the whole 40min as it was still a little goey on the toothpick. Thanks for this recipe I will make it again for sure! - 7/13/10

    I cooked these yesterday and almost couldn't wait for today. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose, and I made them in into 12 muffins. They paired lovely with a hard boiled egg for breakfast this morning. Yummy! - 10/3/10

    Really good! Only baked for 30 minutes and was a bit dry but nuke it for a few seconds and add a bit of spray butter and you're good to go. Made a double batch and added FiberSure to make it into a good hearty breakfast. Would definitely make this again - will probably try w/other fruit next time. - 2/7/10

    Gummy, gummy gummy, and not enough flavour to make up for the texture (which I can appreciate knowing that it is a fat free good, so my issue was mainly flavour). I tried a second time w 5 mashed bananas, 1 T cinn, no egg/applesauce, 1 tbsp honey and a splash of Almond Breeze - MUCH better! - 8/21/09

    Awesome banana bread! I used half white flour and half whole wheat flour. I couldn't even taste the splenda in it. If I didn't know it was low fat, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I will certainly make this again, maybe into muffins next time. Everyone in my family liked it too. - 1/19/09

    I had one ripe banana sitting around so I decided to divide everything by 3 and make some muffins. After starting I realized that I had no eggs so took a little flour and mixed it with some water and used that as a substitute. I assumed it would turn out horribly but they were still very good! - 5/31/07

    Hmmm... this really did not work out for me. I am not going to rate this as I made several changes. Here is what not to do: used whole wheat flour instead of white, used 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites, and put in muffin wrappers instead of loaf pan. - 4/8/11

    I doubled the recipe and made 12 muffins and a bread. I've already eaten two muffins! Found them moist and flavorful. I used extra bananas, 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 all-purpose, added some walnuts, the egg yolks, orange and vanilla extract, and half the amount of sugar instead of splenda. - 5/17/10

    I made this with whole wheat flour, egg substitute, and sugar. I made 10 muffins. I made one batch with 1/2 cup sugar and it was awfully sweet. The second batch I made with 6 Tbls. sugar (119 calories per muffin). Perfect! The whole wheat flour gave it a nutty taste. Thanks for sharing! - 3/30/08

    I made this recipe today and it was very good. The bread was moist and flavorful. I changed a few things based on not wanting to use splenda and white flour. I used Whole wheat pastry flour and only a quarter cup of sugar (real). Needs to bake at least 45 minutes! Delicious! - 5/11/12

    I made a loaf of this bread last night and it was awesome! I was a little leary on using Splenda because I have never cooked with it before and couldnt believe how great it was.

    I had leftover baby food in my pantry so I used the baby banana pkgs. I ended up overcooking my bread, its wrapped up in foil right now and I am hoping it gets softer, but even overcooked and kinda hard, it still tastes good. Next time I'll make muffins instead. Will rate with stars next time. - 11/28/07
